Hi everyone!

I have just started editing my music video using Final Cut Express. The footage is a mix of HDV and 16mm telecined to HD (H.264) The finished video will be in PAL SD, but I want the extra resolution to crop/pan/add effects before outputting to SD. So far I have set up my project as a HD timeline, but maybe that is a mistake?
I am sure it will work either way, but do you guys have an idea what will give the best results/easiest workflow?
All input appreciated :-)

I recommend editing in HD, export HD too, and next import the file in fcp and export in SD! Or just use apple Compressor after exporting the SD! =)
