Hi there. I'm just getting to grips with FCE and am looking to cut a new project on it. A friend of mine has the impressive Sony PMW-EX1 camera which will shoot in a whole manner of modes, alas FCE does not officially support them, only DV, HDV or AVCHD. This camera will supposedly shoot in HDV compatible 1080i50/60 (at 1440) which we could use. However, I wonder whether it is possible to shoot at 1080p (i.e. non-HDV compatible mode) and use QT Pro to transcode the files to 1080i (or 720p) via Apple Intermediate Codec using HDV mode? Earlier, I took a 720p demo file and used QT Pro to transcode into AIC 1280x720p HDV and I was able to import the resulting .mov into FCE with no problems. Admittedly, when I put this clip into a sequence it was unrendered... Am I right in thinking my proposal IS possible or should I play safe and shoot in HDV 1440x1080i mode? Thanks.
