I think you have to settle for a dvd.
BluRay is somewhat out of the question as you have SD footage in the sequence.
You can beter downscale than upscale.
Upscaled SD footage looks awfull. Unless you try a plugin as Red Giants Instant HD but its only for AE.
Make a SD widescreen sequence with the fields to upper and drop everything into that and scale it down to fit the frame.
Use Dynamic Link to make your DVD.
Just to be sure I get this right... I'm okay making either a DVD or a Blu-Ray disk if all the source items are HD, but only the DVD is a reasonable option if any of the sources is not HD. Is this a fair summation?
Thanks in advance!
I like to give analogies, but sometimes it helps to get a clear understanding of the issue.
You like to take a bath. Great. So do I. Now imagine the exact same amount of water (the same number of pixels) not in a bathtub, but in an Olympic swimming pool and it barely covers the bottom (same amount of pixels spread out over a larger area) and it is no longer appealing.
That is what happens when you uprez SD to HD. It always loses its appealing nature.
Thank you both for your help; I really appreciate it.
