Downconvert and then Uprez


I know a lot of people are talking about downconverting but how would I shoot in HDV, downconvert to SD, edit in SD widescreen project, and then uprez back to HDV? People are saying they can uprez at a later date. How would I do that? The reason I ask is because I will be using an sd camera to shoot back camera during a ceremony and cant edit that in a HDV timelime. Everything else will be shot in HD and at some point would like to offer the other parts of the video in HDV. Do you also think the best option is shoot in HDV and downconvert in SD widescreen timeline?

Thanks so much...

You are probably misinterpreting what folks mean. The ideal method would involve shooting HD, initially digitizing SD, building your edit and then re-digitizing at some point into HD, ideally simply requiring re-rendering for a finished HD version of the same sequence you assembled in SD.

If you're mixing SD original footage into the mix, you would have to up-rez that material before you could output an HD picture.
