Simply lowering the resolution of a given video file is not going to make it look better. Once you’ve already filmed it, it is what it is, for the most part anyway. Once it’s done in 1080i, there’s not much sense downconverting it, unless you’re uploading it. 720p is not interlaced, and 1080i is. 720p60 will look smoother in motion than 1080i.
Downconverting anything is not going to make it look better, though some computer players seem to have a “preference”, andWILL playback certain resolutions better.
