shooting in both PAL and NTSC
on Apr 21, 2010 at 9:54:43 pm

We're working on a large project with everything being shot on P2 720 24P. Everything will be shot in NTSC. However, one of the shoots will be in Singapore which uses PAL.

How should we plan for this? Do they shoot at 25P? Do we need to send the footage out for standards conversion? We're editing this project on FCP. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If you're shooting 720 you're not shooting NTSC or PAL you're shooting high definition. Yes Europe projects 720p at 25p vs. 24p but other than that not a big deal. If the folks are shooting with an HVX200 that doesn't have the 24p frame rates, have them shoot 720/25p and conform the footage in Cinematools to 24p. Shouldn't be a biggie.

Thanks Noah. These are all interviews. So how does conforming this footage from 25 to 23.98 effect audio? What about synching voice with picture?

Some cameras can shoot at both 59.94 and 50Hz system frequencies. Our HPX500 does this. The only downside to shooting 59.94 in a PAL country is lights may appear to flicker as the 50 Hz a/c line freq might beat with the 59.94 shooting system freq.
