I am sure this has been covered before but I cannot find exactly what I need in my search so far.
I use Sony Movie Studio Plat 12.
I would like some advice for the best workflow to achieve uniform quality in a project when I mix the input media.
1.The main volume of footage is Gopro Hero 3 1080@50 fps and that of course is progressive footage. I transcode all of this footage to Cineform AVI with the same settings using Gopro Cineform Studio..
2. MS project properties are set to match the above media. I am happy with my workflow and results when dealing only with the Gopro footage.
( Workflow for Gopro only footage is ....Match media for project/disable resample all clips/render mainconcept HD 1080 at 25fps ( CBR 20mb)
3. Second set of input footage is AVCHD 1080 50i from a Sony Camcorder.
I have tried treating the AVCHD footage separately in a dedicated MS project and rendering out to Mainconcept HD 1080....then importing that to my main project but the results are not very good presumably because of the double render. The AVCHD image is not sharp.
