That might stretch you SD footage beyond the limit...
But for a DVD finish just edit in a 720 x 576 project.
> and importing the HDV & DV clips into that, thinking that when I did the render it would upsize the DV clips, but it doesn't seem to do it
Go to Preferenaces and enable "default scale to frame size" before you import the clips. Or on the timline right click and do the same to selected clips.
>What is the best way to upscale the DV footage
There is software that can do this. I can't recall the name, so maybe someone who knows will chime in.
<Chime> InstantHD from Red Giant software.
There it is.
<Chime> ReSizer from Digital Anarchy.<br /><Chime> SuperResolution from Dee Mon.
You dee mon, Jeff.
Tks for that advice guys. Re-Sizer looks the best for my future needs, but I probably don't have time to learn it for this project.
From the other reading I've done, if I don't use ReSizer or an equivalent, it seems that to get the best DVD quality I'd be better off creating an SD project and downscaling the HDV footage for that, rather than creating a HDV project and upscaling the SD, and then creating the DVD from that. Compression logic would tell me that upscaling the DV footage in PP and then sending it back down to SD for the DVD mastering is going to result in a lot of ****** looking original DV footage.
Because I'm under severe time-constraints regarding the DVD, I think for this one time-only, I'll do a seperate SD project for the DVD, and then redo it as a HDV project for the Blu-Ray release in a few months.
