    How long until we get High Def Editing from Adobe Premiere and Final Cu
    Pro.

    How long until they make high definition DVD players?

    How long until they make high definition DVD burners?

    How long until at least half the population has HDTV's?

    How many have HDTV's now? (What % of the people out there?)

    Is it *really* worth doing projects in HD when you're not broadcastin
    them, but putting them on DVDs?

    How much bigger are HD files than SD files? How much more drive spac
    will it eat up

    IMHO
    Not as long as a piece of string, or as short as the next 6 months and the
    size of the drive depends on the number of milli. seconds you wish to edit.
    One true fact. The better the input quality the better the final movie.
    That I am afraid is all I can help you with. Maybe someone else has insider
    knowledge.

    You can do realtime HD editing in Final Cut Pro now using the DVCproHD
    format, int Premiere Pro with HDV and various plug ins (Aspect HD etc).

    (Both will do offline HDV editing)
    "They've" made them. Others have to sort out which format to go with
    first - BluRay or HD DVD.

    Once they do expect to see them in shops inside of a year.
    About a year after that, at vast expense, steadily dropping, just like
    with CDR/RW and DVDR/RW
    Who knows, How long did it take half the population ot buy DVD players
    and widescreen TV sets. 8 years?

    I heard 10% in the US but I can't remember the source, so treat it as
    apocryphal - sounds a little optimistic to me, but I can't remember
    seeing another figure cited.

    Whatever the real figure is, count on a higher level Japan, MUCH MUCH
    lower in Europe, like half of one percent
    It's future protecting them. HD can be downscaled and look as good as
    native SD material, but SD will look terrible enlarged to HD quality.
    Its up to you.

    But in general right now it's not going to hurt you unless clients are
    specifically coming to you asking for HD production.
    DVCproHD is 4 times tha data rate of DV, HDV is the same (3.5 MBs) but
    you'll probably need to convert it to an offline format (DV or
    DVCproHD)
