Default Mixed format Editing, How to?

Hello,

I shot a wedding with and HD camera and an SD widescreen camera and I thought it would be easier to work with the two.

Inside of an HD project, there is no setting for changing the format to SD 16:9 with the NX card, only OHCI?

Why is this?

If I start an SD 16:9 project and try to import the HD footage I get a message that there is a format mis-match?

So what is the best way to edit?

I have heard to edit in HD and downconvert, but if I edit in HD, my SD footage will go out the window.

Thanks for your help.

You should be able to mix without any errors, even with different framerates...

What is your output? Because if you mix the HD and SD footage together and output HD, the SD stuff is going to look horrible.

Your other choice is to edit everything in SD and output to SD.

NX has a 16:9 DV preset, use that. You have to create a new setting and pick from the 60i NX SD list.

Thanks, but I am not seeing an NX preset.

I shot the HD in 720p60, the SD in DV.

The HD footage/project will let me convert it to 60p SD, but OHCI only. The NX places are blank in the project settings.

I will speak to tech support tomorrow.

I am thinking the only way is to start an SD project and add the HD footage to it per clip as I can not import a sequence.

Did not expect to have 60p sort of be on a island in terms of working with it.
