I edited a movie in FCP. I nested the final movie in a 10 bit uncompressed sequence at 1280x720. I want to output to D5 using the Panasonic HD 3700.

1) If I buy a blackmagic card and do a "print to tape" on D5 from FCP, does the "print to tape" happens in "real time" or is it a frame by frame thing? If it's realtime, I assume you must need all the RAID power you can get to avoid dropped frames. But I don't understand why it would have to be this way.

2) Is there any kind of uprezing that happen when you dump to D5? Will my 720P end up at 1080P?

Thanks for your time.

1) Yes, it's realtime. You need a big stonking RAID

2) No. If you want 1080p, nest in a 1080p seq and scale.
