What is the best setting when your client wants the "film look", you want to shoot and edit HD (so the editor can reposition as necessary) but the end result it SD for Beta SP?

When most people say "Film Look" they are talking about 24p. But it can also mean shallow depth of field or the gamma settings.

It is too broad of a term to be really useful without more info.

But short answer, shot 720p@24pN, edit 24p (23.98) and when you go to make your tape the card will add the pulldown for 29.97 video as well as handle the downconversion.

You don't make many friends with cross posting (even if you tell about it upfront)

And if you also need to produce DVDs, the workflow outlined by Michael works fine. And the added benefit is you can place more footage on a DVD because the frame rate is 23.976. When encoding, Compressor and other encoders place flags in the encoded files that tell DVD players to add pulldown when the clips are played.
