Editing mixed formats for Reel in Final Cut
Posted 29 December 2011 - 10:10 AM
As 50% of my material is in Standard Definition I think on this reel I'm going to finish to Standard def for internet and DVDs in 16x9. The footage is all 25fps but some is standard def, some HD but also a mixture of 16x9 (anamorphic), 2.35 and a little 4x3.
So here is my concern, when setting up a sequence should I have it at say DV PAL anamorphic or instead work at the higher end like in ProRes before I export down to Standard Def.
Thanks in advance for all your help.

Don't limit your footage for any future use, color space has caused a new problem for digital work-flows
Depending on your settings just leave it at 25fps pal or 1080/25 rgb709.
In terms of aspect ratio that's up to you really you will need to judge what looks aesthetically pleasing,
If you can blowup the SD footage to get a 16:9 aspect ration go ahead, people wont notice to much between 16:9 and 2.35
See if any of that helps
