    Default PLease help with resolution understanding

    Hello,
    I am working in HD 1440X1080 24p
    I am doing this because I want to have the best resolution for when I transfer to 35mm film reels.
    Am I correct in this thinking?
    If I am...
    If I were to capture video from a VHS tape which I need, is there a way to capture it at 1440X1080 24p?

    I am using Aspect HD/Adobe Premier pro 1.5/adobe After Effects pro 6.5

    Thank you
    Shirley

    Default As far as I am aware...

    I would just capture it in it's native 29.97 4:3 Aspect ratio and then try importing it into your project.

    It's been a few years since I worked with Premiere but, if it is anywhere near where Final Cut is, it should convert the file to the appropriate size/frame rate/resolution when you import into that HD project. Though, anytime you go from VHS to HD, you're going to have significant loss of quality- a factor i'm sure you've already considered.

    In my experience, I find that, if you have a VHS or VHS-C or other low-resolution format to paste into new footage, the best strategy is to find a way to edit the footage as picture-in-picture of another HD footage - kinda like when you play a Quicktime file over the internet it looks better if you shrink it down than it does if it's blown up.

    Let me know if this is helpful to you, at all!

    Never looked back since I went Mac...
