    What should my sequence settings be for this situation?

      Hello everyone,


      I'm about to start a project with a few different formats combined on the same sequence, so I'm wondering what format you would all use for the sequence?


      My project will consist of:
      10% DVCPRO HD 720p60 footage from a P2 card
      10% AVCHD 1080i30 footage from a Canon Vixia HF20
      10% Quicktime Animation footage created in After Effects
      70% JPEG images (slide show) of resolutions larger than 1920 x 1080


      I'm not sure of the resolution of the Quicktime Animation footage from After Effects, since I haven't created it yet.  I'll create it with a resolution that matches my sequence resolution.


      I'm thinking the sequence resolution should be 1080p30, to take advantage of the high res JPEG images.  The final delivery will be a h.264 file for web streaming on Vimeo.


      So this is where I need the help:  what sequence format should I use for editing?  Is this a good situation in which to use a ProRes format?  I've never used ProRes on a PC before, and I'm not really sure which specific ProRes format would be best to use here.


      I'm editing with Premiere Pro CS5 on a PC, and I do have the latest version of Quicktime Pro installed.
