    Sorry. Not really sure what you're geting at here. A DVD is ALWAYS standard def. You cannot put HDV on it. Your HDV footage, if that's what you shoot, will have to be reduced down to SD size before you can make a DVD of it.

    If it helps though, I always shoot HDV (cos it;s the best images I can get from my equipment) and then always edit in HDV. At the very last step I downsize to SD for DVD production. This give me a better picture (in my opinion from teh tests I made early on) than capturing the footage in SD and editting in SD. Plus I then have the option later on of exporting out an HDV version from the same timeline for blu-ray production when I get going with that.
