Couple of disclaimers first: 1) Yes, I know that an iPhone shoots better video than SD video scaled up to HD. 2) No, I don't have the choice to not use this, as it is a legacy training program from the 90's that my company is tasked with selectively updating. 3) We're extremely tight on budget, and can't really get a $100 tool like InstantHD at the moment. The tools available are FCPX and Compressor 4. As I understand it, it's better to uprez video in Compressor before using it in Final Cut Pro X. However, note that I can't crop the video to 16:9 in Compressor because I've got to make scene by scene adjustments. I just don't know if it's worth using compressor to convert from interlaced to progressive and uprez it knowing that I've got to scale it up yet again in FCPX when I make my frame adjustments. I'm wondering if I should just use the original DVCPRO footage in FCPX instead of converting it with Compressor? Thoughts/advice? UPDATE: I just noticed PHYX Resolve HD is just $50. I might be able to justify that to convert, does anyone have any experience with it?
