Multiple Fps Timeline, HVR-V1U & Output Questions

Hi all,

I'm working on a project that currently mixes regular DV 60i footage with 24pA HD footage that I shot on a Sony HVR-V1U.

I followed this method to capture the footage:

I edited everything together on the same timeline, following the instructions above.

The regular DV 60i footage is only short clips in the intro, and then small clips in three other areas of the 2 1/2 minute video. To get them to look right as I was editing, I simply stretched them on the canvas to match the 1080 HD sizing.

My questions are:

1) When I export as a QT Movie, does it matter if it is self-contained or not?

2) Should I only export the parts of the project that need to be reverse-telecinied, and then put everything back together on the new timeline, or should I do it all together, even though the 60i footage doesn't need to be reverse-telecinied?

3) Is there an easier way to capture/edit footage shot with the HVR-V1U in 24p? Also, should I be shooting in 24pA or 24p? Most of the footage I've shot so far is in 24pA

4) What is the proper way to output this to a DVD so that it maintains the HD quality and proper frame rate?

Well, I can help you with question 4 and leave the rest to the FCP guys . . .

You can't do HD on a standard DVD. If you want to maintain HD, you'll have to go to Blu-Ray or HD-DVD.

However, on a standard DVD, you can make a 24p file and burn it to disc that way. It generally involves exporting an (SD) MPEG-2 file which is 23.976p, then DVD Studio Pro should be able to make a DVD from that without reencoding the video, or at least not to another frame rate.
