Best way to convert HV20 material to SD?

I've had lots and lots of problems editing in HD using mainly Premiere but also tried Avid and I've come to the conclusion that it's just too much for my compouter to handle.

For now I could live with just converting the material to SD, because editing SD material is no problems whatsoever.

The question then is just: How do I convert the HD material to SD in the best way?

Most of it is already on the harddrive and without tape backup, so even if the best method is to convert it when transferring from the camera to the harddrive, I would also need another solution.


I have tried using Canopus Pro Coder 2 and convert to 480p using Roku codec, but it's not the same as DV. It's still a strain for Premiere to edit.

Any suggestions?

I hate to sound like a drummer but here goes again....

Cineform.... Cineform... Cineform...

What does it do?? It is software that takes the HD footage and brings it to an AVI non compressed format...

In the old days before we had these Quad core and Dual core computers you'd have to get a hardware solution to accelerate the video...

Cineform is in a way, the software version of the hardware solution.... only
better..

I will join the chorus... Cineform, Cineform, Cineform. You don't necessarily need Aspect. You could buy NeoHDV and still edit with it in Premeire.
