I can understand why a shoot might be shot in HD and delivered SD. There are many reasons.

But HD is fundamentally 16×9. What I can’t understand is why something might be shot 16×9 and delivered 4×3. That would make no sense. It is something that you would need to deliberately do to the picture.

hahah Ben,

you have no idea how dumb this was. My client hired a “professional” company to do the audio mixing and to provide the camera equipment for this big event at the Madison Square Garden. They were recording straight to flash cards in HD format. When they captured the footage a Hard Drive was sent to us with the originals (not a backup) and the HD got damaged on the way.

This company didnt wait for my company to confirm we have all the footage and dispose (format) the flash cards with the HD footage and the only backup left was the SD footage from the tapes of the cameras. That’s how we ended with SD instead of HD after my client paid quite good money for this pro company services.

After struggling with so many obstacles, we reached the end of this DVD , thanks to God and the work of my incredible / awesome video team. My client asked if it was possible to convert 4:3 to 16:9 and that’s why the thread and your helpful information.

The lesson here kiddies is…..when shooting tape-less…. MAKE A DAMN BACKUP !!!!

I had a similar situation where the drive died in the middle of copying the footage to a RAID . They said “oh not a prob our camera tech made a back up” 3 days later and no word. So i call them back and say “hey, i didn’t get a fed-ex. What gives?”..... THERE WAS NO BACK UP !!!!! They had to re-shoot.

You’ve just reminded me… I’ve got everything sitting on a 4 disk RAID 0 with no backup for about 4 weeks.

I’m making a backup tonight!

Thanks Brian. :)
