First off thanks for taking the time to read through my question.I am a noob to video editing and so pardon my ignorance.I own a HD camcorder (Sony HDR SR11) that records in the AVCHD format.

I made a documentary for a contest that requires submission in -"standard VHS in either NTSC or PAL/SEACAM formats". I am not sure how to convert my HD video to these formats. How would I approach this? Would I be getting better quality with a (cheaper?) SD camcorder rather than trying to downconvert the HD video?

Also, if I need to burn the HD video onto a regular DVD so that itplays on non-hd televisions - how would I approach that?

Any help would be appreciated.
