I would love to shoot 24pN and get 40min. on my 16G P2, however
I was told 24pN causes issues when creating NTSC dvd's, because you need to introduce
pulldown to the footage for the first time (unlike 24p that is over 60, and converts better to 29.97 dvd's.)
Anyone who has actually gone all the way to film??
Are you shooting 720P or 480i? 24pA is an interlaced scheme and is not available (or needed) on 720p.
IF 720P, 24p records 60 (59.94) frames per second by duplicating each frame 2 or 3 times and then they are removed when you ingest the footage. Where as 24pN only records the 24 frames and that is why you get the longer record times.
Once they are ingested there is no difference in your timeline other than the clips TC (the 24p clips will have missing numbers where the duplicate frames are pulled out.
FWIW, this is an old thread and most people will not see a new post only the leaders and people that have subscribed to the thread. Sure are a lot of Michaels in this thread.
