I'm new to the photography arena and am working with someone this weekend on a documentary project. She has extensive footage that, according to my computer anyway, was shot years ago in 720x480 at 29.97 fps, 4:3, and standard def.
My camcorder (Canon Vixia HF G10) will not allow me to shoot in 720x480--my choices are 1920x1080 or 1440x1080. Thoughts on which would be the better way to go?
Portions of the video will likely eventually land on YouTube (which uses 16:9 resolution), websites, and a DVD.
I don't want to accentuate that the footage she has is a different size--I'd like the whole video to flow so the viewer doesn't notice. A large portion (half or more) of the video will be using her old footage.
I'm assuming I should shoot it at PF30 to match the frame rate of the old footage, but am lost as to the resolution size to use. I'll be editing the project in either Adobe Premiere (if I can figure it out) or iMovie.
Thank you for any thoughts.
