Hd 1920 by 1080

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
i got footage shot on a canon HD and the properties is H.264 Decoder, 1920 x 1080, Millions 16-bit Integer (Little Endian), Stereo (L R), 48.000 kHz with 29 fps
i exported that footage using mpegstreamclip to change it to apple pro res 422 and change frame rate to 25 fps and maintaining the size and adding 16 to 9 in the setting.
what is worrying me that this footage after editing will be aired on a usual tv-Pal 720 by 576.
what is the best way to put it so i don't have to find it cropped at the end.

The Best Answer

Check with the network to see if they want letterboxed or anamorphic footage.  In addition what format are you delivering on?  File or physical media?
Without more details I suggest you drag one of your converted clips onto the timeline and select YES to update the sequence settings.  Edit.  Export that using Current Settings.  Create a new sequence with your delivery settings (720x576) and drop the exported QT movie onto this sequence.  When you drop it in pick NO to retain the settings you plugged in.  If you do it this way you will have an HD version for archival and the SD version to send to the network.
As for going from 30 to 25 frames, I don't have good advice for that.  I got some PAL in recently and went through Motion's Optical Flow to get it to 30 fps.  Looks great, but it took forever.
