working with 1080i and 720p footage

Has any one gone throu this hassle?

We recently shot a T.V show that needs to be edit pretty soon. We have not started it yet, but I know I'm going to run into this problem because we shot with (2) Sony FX1 cameras - 1080i, and (1) JVC HD100 - 720p , both in 30fps.

Does anyone know whats the best way to work with this footage? 1080i or 720p? in the same time line. or whats the best way to convert either one or the other into 1080i or 720p



I'm using FCP 5.1

Well Raf, I'm not an editor so I probably will be wrong, lol. However, I think you're going to have to convert the footage shot with the FX1 down to 720 to match the JVC.

My question is why did you choose to shoot 1080 and 720 on the same show? Is there an advantage you're looking for in the future?

You'll get better quality by downsampling the 1080i to 720P than the other way around.

The obvious question is...

... what format do you have to deliver?

1080i to 720p w/ frame rate complication

i have similar issue but with an added complication. i have a project that needs to be delivered 720p @ 24p fps. he majority of the footage was shot in this format. For some unknown reason a few shots were shot in 1080i @ 60i.

the 1080i footage was captured in a seperate project,exported in quicktimes using the animation codec, and imported into the 720p project. it looks like crap (loss of color saturation, pixelated image) compared to the native 720p footage.
This project is also being done on pc avid media composer adrenaline.

what is the best/proper way to convert the footage without the giant loss in quality? i am assuming we are missing a step involving pulldown because of the frame rate issues.

Thanks!
