    iMovie: combining 720 and 1080
    Hi guys,

    just a question here for all you imovie users out there.
    i have footage (vacation) that has been shot with our iphones and footage that has been shot with my camera. How would I best approach this? I do want to use the max resolution possible (future), but how would I go about to combine 720p and 1080p (not interlaced!) in one and the same movie? and which option would I use to export with the best quality for streaming to my tv set (1080p)?

    much appreciated

    Combine the footage...but it will only export as 720p...the 1080 footage will downgrade to 720p but not vice versa...

    +1 to this

    And just remember, you can go down without losing clarity, but not up. The 720 will be "good enough" for most and you should not be disappointed.
