We shoot live theater in SD and are starting to feel the HD crunch - even though only a couple of TV stations broadcast in HD, they are getting more and more vocal about wanting HD footage. Today had one publicist tell us that one station won't use the footage unless we upconvert it to HD for them (the fact that another of the news programs on their network does this all the time with our footage without problems...doesn't seem to factor into their thought process). So I'm looking into ways to best turn our 16:9, DV/DVCPRO NTSC 29.27fps footage into an HD format. As I haven't done much work with HD (and it has all been in reverse to this - turning HD into SD), I need a bit of help. My thought process now is this: 1) create a new sequence that is 720p HD. 2) Drag the clip into the sequence (which is automatically changing the scale to 150% end embedding it into the sequence with black on all sides) 3) Render it 4) Print to video and export it to our Sony HVR-V7U camera via Firewire and record it on HDV tape Is this correct? Any settings I should use instead? Thanks in advance for any help on this!
