creating 720p and HV10 recording

how do I best convert the HV10's 1080i to 720p? if it helps I'm a mac user.

also, can I play out my finished 25F sequences to the HV10 (mixture of A1 and HV10 at 720p)? will it record the progressive ok as I know it only plays back the 25F and doesn't record it? sorry if it's a stupid qu! how are the rest of you 'HV10 as a deck' users doing it?

thanks.

For the absolute best quality I would import the HDV into After Effects, run Magic Bullet and Deartifacter on it, then resize it to 1280x720 in after effects and render it out. Though this is a little involved and time consuming. You can probably get results almost as good just by deinterlacing and resizing in your editor or compression program.

I assume there would be interlacing problems if you didn't deinterlace before resizing but I could be wrong.

It will take years for the magic bullet to run through its deinterlacer. Deartifacter also takes hours and doesn't seem to do anything. Some very very small chroma smoothing.

Like I said, you can get pretty good video from just deinterlacing and resizing in your editor or compression app of choice. However when I need the absolute best quality MB + Deartifacter can't be beat for image quality. The deartifacter will take away the blocking around anything red which is something I notice for sure.
