Was the Sony footage shot in HD?
Hi Jim and Jhon. Thank you
Yes the sony is HD.
What´s the correct size when creating a widescreen project? 720x480 with 1.2 aspect ratio?
This is what is set when I choose DV Widescreen profile when creating the new sequence.
Thank you a lot
Your SONY records HD in 1440x1080 non sqa
ure pixel format. The Panasonic
is a DV camcorder and records only in SD 720x480
using a pixel aspect ratio of 0.90
. I believe that is correct.
I belive that if you mix the footage on the same DVD you will either have a letter box or the SD footage will look streched. Harm can probably explain this better than I.
Your end result should be DVD, which is 720 x 480 NTSC or 720 x 576 PAL.
Use a SD widescreen sequence setting and downrez your HDV or let the camera do that for you by capturing SD format. If you have captured HDV, you can either downrez by using Motion/Scale to fit your SD resolution or use Scale to frame. The latter has a small drawback in that it will result in small black bars left and right, that will normally not show up when played on a TV.
Thank you a lot friends.
