downconverting to 720 from 1080
Using footage shot in 1080i, how do I export it as 720p thru Premiere Pro? When going thru the settings with exporting movie, it is only giving me the option of 720 X 480, not 720 X 1280...? Thanks.

1080i to 720p... what format? MPEG2? WMV? AVI?

I'm not exactly sure. Whichever is the highest quality format to run from a windows media server to a 52+ inch HD screen.

You need to use the Adobe Media Encoder in the File>Export menu.

Pick one of the 720p presets. You may have to fix the audio settings though.

I do this all the time because my HDTV is 720p and there is no sense in wasting dara tare on something that will be scaled down by the TV. Better I scale it down and use the same data rate.

If other options fail and you have Cineform, you may be able to do it in HD link, then do your windows Media Econder from that converted file.

HD Link does a good job on capture from Sony 1080i PAL material
