HPX shooting at 1080 24p 59.94hz advice needed!!
on Apr 10, 2012 at 10:20:11 pm

Here's the problem:

I have a Panasonic HPX 171 p2 camera. I am currently shooting 1080 at 25p. This is all in Pal land (i'm based in Europe).

I am using Sony Vegas 9 to edit.

I want to shoot at 1080 at 24 frames.

To do this I have to change the frequency from 50HZ to 59.94HZ

This takes me to NTSC where the frame rate of the footage defaults to 29.970 on the actual footage when I put it on the Vegas timeline.

To render the footage smoothly on Vegas (to be played back on Youtube) what do I have to do to enable smooth playback?

In properties what would be the best settings? (24 frames 1080 i'm assuming)

And what would be the best render settings?

Would I have to disable resample on each piece of footage?
Currently it is at playback 1.000 and undersample is 1.000 - beside that says 29.970 fps.

Remember this is to all playback smoothly for uploading on YouTube but if I wanted to view it back on my TV would I have to change any of the above settings differently?

Lastly, what would be the best quality for my camera? 1080 24p, 1080i?

I feel that my footage could be so much better quality than what I have been shooting at using 1080 25p at 50HZ...I shot 1080 24p 59.94HZ a year ago and the picture quality was amazing, but I had so many problems with blurriness when editing it on Vegas and trying to pull down and use the correct frame rate / pulldown on Vegas.

Any advice at all on this would be much appreciated.

I'm still trying to get to grips with the camera.

Thanks

Anthony

Why?

Make your life easier and shoot 720p25. This is a perfect setting for YouTube.

I like to know why you think that is better? Better than shooting at 1080i 25fps? I would like to shoot for something that may be used for broadcast purposes as well. Any suggestions on this would be appreciated. Thanks.
