I shot a music video with my hpx 170 in 1080i 24p unfortunately (yes i i'm aware that i should shoot in 1080 24PA in the future and remove advance pull down). But for now i made the mistake and its too late, so i used cinema tools to REVERSE TELECINE and my footage comes in @ 24fps. My fotage seems to have lost alot of quality and has become very grainy after log and transfer. It looks fine obviuosly @ 25% or even 50% viewing percentages in the viewer window, but anything larger than, IT LOOKS TERRIBLE.
Thanks for your response Jeremy, no i have not looked @ the footage through a capture card/ calibrated monitor. I do most of my work on my new quad core i7 27"imac. I have never had this problem shooting in 720/24pn, always crystal clear HD.
Also may i ask , you are saying there is no quality loss after capturing mfx(p2) files into quicktime .mov files?
do you have any suggestions how to fix this grainy footage?
