    Best workflow for mix of SD and HD footage on same timeline

    devseven7

      Hi

       

      I'm editing a project using two types of footage.

       

      One comes from a Creative Vado HD on SD settings (4:3. AVI format, 640x480, 30fps) and one from an unknown HD Sanyo, which was supposed to be on a SD setting, but the files I've got are widescreen 1280x720 XDCAM-EX 29.97 fps.

       

      Predictably enough, my old PC can't handle these Sanyo files.

       

      I'm upgrading to a proper HD editing rig this year, but in the meantime, can anyone suggest the best approach?

       

      What would be the best way of converting the HD footage so that I can edit it? And of mixing it in with the footage from the other source? Output would be PAL DVD
