Hi,
I am trying to figure out the right delivery format. For what? Well, I do not know.
I am shooting a documentary which may end up on tv or if lucky even cinema.
Hehe, could just be web.
So now I am shooting in a mix between 720 50fps and 1080 25fps. How should I edit, well even transcode this, in 720 or 1080?
Yes I know, 1080 would be better, but workflow-wise, could 720 be enough and save a lot of, well, disk space?
Another stupid question: I am encoding into Apple Intermediate Codes, would it be worth trying to get hold of Final Cut 6 in order to use ProRes?
thanks!
