I am working on a long format doc that started shooting about a year ago. Most of the footage is 23.976 but I would say 3 or 4 hours of interviews are shot at 29.97.
Instead of using compressor or some other software and days of render time to do the 23.976 conversion could I string together the interviews in a timeline and play them out through the Decklink with it set up to convert 29.97 to 1080p 23.976. Then route that signal to another Final Cut station with a Decklink and do a wild capture at 23.976.
Would this type of hardware frame rate conversion work without any artifacts like what happens in a software frame rate conversion? Any ideas?
