Fairly new to videography on a prosumer camcorder.
In July, i was asked to film a fight event, that would be output on DVD. So i hired a Sony Z5.
Lovely camera, loved using it - however.........
I shot in DV Resolution / Format, 16:9 widescreen (My PC doesn't cope with editing of HD video :( )
So, for future (I have a wedding coming up)
1st Question is: Can I / should I / would you recommend that I shoot in HD then just convert the full footage down to DV quality?
When I output my edit (from Premiere Pro) to DVD format - i found this displayed great on my 40" Samsung - but when i played on other TV's (such as 32") there were elements cropped (such as the countdown / round timer I had placed on the left hand side of the footage in post production.
I (due to my in-experience) thought that as long as you output to DVD standard it would resize as appropriate on the tv it is being displayed - which it didn't :(
What I'm really want to know is, what is best format to shoot and edit in to get the best DVD output in post production.
Many thanks for any help, it is greatly appreciated,
Edit: I'm in the UK
