1. Export your EDIUS timeline to Canopus HQ Fine Quality. Be sure Edius project setting is set to Standard Color space conversion.
2. Open the HD 1440x1080i (interlaced) or 1920x1080i (interlaced) file and apply a resize filter and set as seen below, be sure to use the Lanczos3 downscale filter for sharpest results and interlaced must be ticked. If your file format is NTSC, type 720x480
Note: I have not tested with progressive source formats, in such a case, you may leave Interlaced unticked.
3. Set Color Depth handling as seen below
4. Choose Canopus HQ codec and set to Online (Fine) (smallest file size)
or choose Canopus Lossless (slightly better but larger file size)
or choose Uncompressed (slightly better again but very large file size)
