I was handed some 29.97p HDCAM footage that needs to be integrated into a 23.98p project. I need to do this as we may need to go back out to film. How do I convert the footage and what type of issues will I encounter in trying to do this?
If there is no sound involved and if the action can stand being slowed down you can simply playout the footage from the VTR at 23.98.
Otherwise you are into either software or hardware conversion processes.
Snell and Wilcox and Teranix make excellent frame rate conversion boxes. However results vary depending on subject matter as they use temporal convesion processing pixel by pixel.
