I'm a little confused as to the workflow of using the P2 footage to submit to festivals.
From what I understand is that footage is captured on P2 cards--dowloaded to a computer with the P2 software--Edit/ color timed in FCP natively HDV.

Then you render the final cut to a HDV master that resides on the comptuer. What tape format do you render out to for release?

The HVX-200 records in the DVCPRO HD codec, not HDV. Final Cut Pro will let you edit and output in a wide variety of codecs. You should be able to choose whatever codec/tape format your festival requires, if you've got the hardware.

Generally you would want to master in the computer at the highest quality available, and then output to whatever tape format you need from there.
