    Best way to edit HDV & AVCHD clips in same timeline?

    teamhood Level 1

      Hi all,

       

      This is my first experience using AVCHD clips and I am struggling to find the best way to edit a concert that was recorded with two HDV cameras and 1 AVCHD camera. I am using PPCS4 and I'm trying to determine the best way to edit in PPCS4 link to Encore to output SD DVD's and BLU RAY.

       

      Should I add the AVCHD clip to a timeline that is appropriate for the HDV footage or create a timeline for the AVCHD footage and drop in the HDV footage? What will result in best quality?

       

      Should I convert the AVCHD clip to HDV? I know that this would make editing a lot easier, but what program do you suggest? Can I do this in PPCS4?

       

      I'm already seeing the performance problem while syncing these 3 clips up... I just don't know where to begin!

       

      Thank you for any help, suggestions or personal experience with editing the two.
