Cutting a show shot almost entirely at 24P (DVX100), but need to integrate some footage shot with traditional vid cam.

Using AE, how can I process the 'traditional footage' so that it more closely matches the 24P material?

Thanks in advance.

If you're finishing on video, leave the 24P at 29.97 fps with pulldown -- this is how it comes out of the camera. Then it should integrate with the 29.97 video, but a trained eye (maybe untrained) will see the difference.

If you want them to match exactly ... you should use something like Twixtor to treat the 29.97 stuff so it looks like 24 (actually 23.976 fps), by creating new intermediate frames. Warning: it might not work well, depending on the speed and content of your footage. And I haven't used Twixtor to do that yet.

Try the demo.

Thanks Jon & Steve

Thanks for your advice. The difference between the two acquistion formats is glaring, even with shots that don't include pans, tilts or in-frame action. I am considering purchasing Magic Bullet Suite, but as yet haven't. I'll try a demo to see how it treats the 'traditional' footage. As regards Twixtor, perhaps they offer a demo version to check out, too. Thanks again.

Bill

[Bill Buchanan] "The difference between the two acquistion formats is glaring, even with shots that don't include pans, tilts or in-frame action."

Is it glaring to your client? :)

If your client is paying for the extra cost to convert (and they should, since they chose to use different formats), you might want to say "it'll cost X dollars to fix it. Is the difference still glaring?"

Steve :)

Steve:

You're right on all accounts. But as producer of this particular project, I'm also the client. The difference jumps out like a pair of brown shoes with a tuxedo. I hope to screw around with the Twixtor and/or MB Suite demos asap. I'll post the results for whatever they may be worth to you and others.
