I've read a lot online but still can't figure it out.
I'm trying to take a FCP file that is 23.98fps and export it through compressor and into Adobe Encore so it plays as a 29.97 DVD.
Can anybody tell me exactly how to do this? I've tried learning about the 3:2 pull down and other methods about flags, but can't figure it out. After it comes out of compressor it looks awful.
Any help would be appreciated.
23.98 fps video on a DVD will play back as 29.97 fps on systems that don't support progressive video - the player does the pull-down automatically. And of course it will play back as 23.98 fps progressive on system which support progressive playback.
So if you aren't already, you should export from Compressor as 23.98 fps MPEG-2 for DVD-Video, and just import that into Encore. Also make sure you are exporting elementary streams, and not a muxed MPEG-2 file.
