    Incorporate standard definition footage in a high def sequence


      Hi everybody

      Hope someone can help me out on this one.

      I have to incorporate standard definition footage 720x576 PAL 25fps, in my HD sequence 1920x1080 25fps (my HD is XDCAM EX 1080p25 in .mov files)

      What's the best way to do this?

      Unfortunately I don't have a cool AJA Xena 2KE to do the upconversion via hardware

      so all I'm left with is "software"

      Do I simply import the PAL footage on my HD sequence and upscale it? (something like 250% you can immagine what the footage looks like!)

      Do I need something like Magic Bullet instant HD?

      Can I upscale with after effects or media econder?

      Pleaz help

      Thank you!!!

      p.s. I captured the PAL from BetaSP tapes
