HDV to ProRes 920?

Can anyone give me a quick answer to this, so i don't have to search for a couple hours?
I'm pretty familiar with FCP but am i missing something?
Is there a way to capture HDV to full raster 1080x1920 so i can mix with my transcoded flash based material without the render issues? (i don't want to downres the 1920 to 1440)
I capture via Canon 30p HDV to ProRes LT and it outputs 1440 not 1920. The only way i figure is to transcode to 1920 via MPEGStreamClip or Compressor.

BTW - anyone else frustrated by the poor batch processing in Compressor? ie. drag 10-20 clips into a droplet or the native app and it hangs for 4-5 minutes? Really annoying.

Thanks for looking.

Re: HDV to ProRes 920?

If you take your HDV files and rewrap them into a MOV container you can bring them into a full raster project and they will edit just fine. This does not require any rendering and is a very fast process.

You can use a utility like ClipWrap to change the container.
