One thing that would useful to know is how do you plan on delivering your Project. That might sway things one way, or the other.
Hi Bill et al ~
As DVDs. I've been reading and reading and this seems to be a very sticky point with many people on other forums. I've heard "interlaced must die" and "30p stutters" and "it's all interlaced anyhow".
Hmmm . . .
I have just learned that "Standard HDV" in a Canon camcorder means interlaced 60i. So I guess it would make sense to use that setting with the 60i setting in PremPro. As well as with HDV30 with PF30.
So does it make sense to you and anyone else that, considering that these are educational DVDs (mostly in the kitchen), and not a cinematic experience, that using interlaced (60i) with the Canon's Standard HDV setting is probably going to work best for us?
The HDV format specifies two standards, 1080i/30 (used by Sony and Canon) and 720p/60 (used by JVC), both at a max bitrate of 25 Mbps.
My guess (based solely on the name and having done no research) is that HDV30 defines a new 'standard' with a bitrate of up to 30 Mbps and allowing 30p at the full 1080 resolution.
