Photos, SD, and HDV

It's been a while since I've done a photo montage and I need a little refresher. I've resized photos to 1440x960 and converted to png. My delivery will be a widescreen SD DVD.

Here's where I get confused. This is what I think I could do:

1. Edit the project as NTSC widescreen and pan/crop to 16:9. Render as DVD Architect NTSC Widescreen.

or

2.Edit the project as HDV 1080-60i and pan/crop to 16:9. Render as DVD Architect NTSC Widescreen for DVD delivery. Also render to HDV 1080-60i and print to tape for a HDV archive for the future. I'm only suggesting 1080i because that's what my camcorder shoots and our TV is 1080i.

or

3. Same as 2 except use 1080-24p.

What do you think? Are there better ways of handling photo-only projects?

Thanks,
Dave

If you're rendering to NTSC widescreen, I'd set the project to NTSC widescreen!

Then use Pan/Crop to add zooms and pans as needed to each project.

If you really want to simplify using images, check out Montage Magic!

Thanks Ed. The only reason I would want to create the project in HDV is so I can archive it in HDV. Then later if I wanted to I could reburn the project to BD. This is what I've been doing for all my video work since I obtained my HDV camcorder. Of course the reality is I may never do that and maybe I should rethink my workflow.

If I continue archiving in HDV what would be your suggestions for working with the photos in HDV?

Thanks.

If you want to archive for future BD, then do #2.
