1080p to 720p: How to Convert and Compress 1080p Full HD videos to 720p
Situation 1: convert 1080p AVCHD files down to 720p for easy editing
"Hey guys, I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any good way to convert 1080p AVCHD video down to 720p?
I do not own a high-def camera yet, but I plan to buy the $900 Canon Rebel T2i within the next couple of months. Since it doesn't offer 24fps in 720p mode, I'll need to shoot my videos in full HD and then down-convert them to edit them semi-painlessly on my laptop, as well as upload them to the internet without having to worry about converting the footage again. There's no way my current editing setup will even come close to editing 1080p AVCHD footage without giving me massive headaches and possibly frying my computer!
Also, is there a way that I can painlessly (or at least semi-easily) convert the footage from AVCHD to, say, MPEG-2? That would also improve editing for me."
Situation 2: Compress 1080p large movies to 720p saving space
"HI THERE. I am just wondering how much I can save the space if I wanted to convert to 1080p movie of 36gb to 720p. I mean does it come under 25gb. What's the easy way to do it? Please help. Thanks in advance."
Situation 3: Downsize 1080p videos to 720p for smooth playback
"I have an older, underpowered netbook and with 1080p hd video that is encoded with h.264, it doesn't play. I have some 720p that will. So, how can I just downsize? I really like the clarity of h.264 video, I just want it smaller and can be played on my netbook smoothly."
