Capture, edit cuts in HDV, color correct in DVCPro HD?

Someone said copying an HDV edited (cuts) sequence into DVCPro HD was the way to go for doing color correction, blue screening, etc.

Any suggestions?

thanks,
elmer

You should get higher quality output by not re-entering the 4:2:0 colour space of HDV and not re-encoding corrected footage back to HDV.

However, for NTSC frame rates, DVCPRO HD (1080) has reduced horizontal resolution (1280x1080) compared to HDV (1440x1080). Unfortunately, all the DVCPro HD 720p settings are also reduced resolution at 960x720. The DVCPRO HD 1080i50 (PAL-friendly) frame size is still 1440x1080, so that's not too bad.

If I wanted to avoid HDV I'd jump to ProRes422 in Final Cut Studio 2 if possible. And if you want to do bluescreen, try to avoid HDV compression entirely by capturing the HDMI output, as discussed here:
