Not too long ago, I purchased a copy of Sony Movie Studio Platinum (can't recall which version - it's on another computer.) Anyhow, I came across a startling discovery recently - when outputting completed films, there is no 1920 x 1080 25p option. This is quite a significant shortcoming for all those PAL users in Australia, Europe and Asia. There are options for 1440 x 1080 25p, 1920 x 1080 25i, 1920 x 1080 30p and 1280 x 720 25p. I'm currently working on a project that is being shot with a Panasonic G6 at 1080 25p and a GoPro Hero 3 which is also shooting at 1080 25p. After editing is completed, I'll be forced to render it at 720 25p.
Is there anything I can do to finish my projects in full HD 25p? Don't suppose there's any clever freeware that will convert 1080 25i to 1080 25p without quality loss? I don't want to have to go out and buy a whole new NLE package.
