I am re-editing my reel and am having some difficulty finding the best quality to edit and export. When I change the sequence settings to a higher resolution, It looks better, but I cannot go full screen with the image when I'm watching the exported clip in quicktime. I have footage ranging from 23.98fps to 25 to 29.97 and from h.264 and dv-pal (720x576) to dvcprohd 720p (960x720), dvcprohd 1080i60 (1280x1080), to hdv 1080p24 (1440x1080). I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a combination of frame size, aspect ratio, pixel aspect ratio, and field dominance in the sequence settings or if I would have to convert all of the files so they are all the same. Thank you very much.

Andrew,

Because SD DVD will be compressed 720x480 for standard monitore i recomend to render all youre clips to DV NSTC 720x480. youre gonna loss quality in youre HD clips but at the end the DVD will compress all. at the edn youre gonna have good results using 2 pass encoding in dvd authoring soft.
bests!
