Converting HDV Footage to DVD

Hi,

I want to convert some 1080i footage to 720x480 DVD complaint MPEG-2.

I can import, deinterlace and resize to 720x480. But I lose the interlacing.

What is the best way to resize to 720x480, while preserving the interlacing?

Thanks.

converson of HDV to SD for DVD

Canopus ProCoder can convert 1080i HDV .m2t files directly to standard-def DVD-compliant MPEG2 ready for DVD authoring, and the interlacing is preserved. I am sure it is possible with other software as well, I just haven't tried it.

By the way, the results are very impressive when doing this- by downsampling to SD you reduce noise and I am now seeing NO NOISE AT ALL on smooth backgrounds in my DVD output. That has never been true before with my VX2k and DVX100 videos.

Thanks for the info.

I have no doubt the quality of resizing Hi-Def into 720x480 would be way, way better than the DV mode of the camcorder.

With DV mode you are outputting 720x480 BUT at 4:1:1, whearas if you resize 1440x1080 to 720x480 you pretty much get 720x480 at 4:4:4 since luma is 1440x1080 and chroma is 720x540 (4:2:0 of 1440x1080)...
