Vegas vs HD (down-convert)

I have to make a music video, i want to shoot in HD and down-convert in SD, from what i heard on DVinfo it's the way to go, i also heard that the best way to edit HD files (M2T) is to render them in "intermediate" HD files, to give your PC a chance...

Is there anyone here using these methods? who can give me advice on "the way to go"?

for exemple is this ok?
1- Shoot the video in HD.
2- Capture the HD files in M2T format.
3- Render the files as AVI format using the HDV 1080-60i intermediate template.
4- Work on the editing with these files.
5- Edit with After Effect possible? without damaging the quality?
6- Render the final project with the NTSC DV Widescreen 24P template for SD.

Please let me know if you see something wrong, thanks!

Thats what I've been doing in Vegas 6 days. Now with Vegas 7c I edit straight from capture. The rendering times are a lot faster going both ways SD DVD and HDV tape.

it seems that you could save yourself alot of render time and headache if you downconvert either directly in the camera (stage 2) or at stage 3. surely that is equivalent to doing it at the end?

That would save a lot of time but then there won't be a master to HDV?
