HVX200 formatting
on May 10, 2013 at 12:51:39 pm

I set up my HVX200 for 1080i/24fps to match my DSLR, but the resulting clips--ingested to FCP through Log and Transfer--say all clips are 1080p/30. The clips look more like 24 than 30 fps, but I'd like to know what's up.

...and I need to figure out how best to transcode my DSLR's H.264 to match.

Thanks in advance.

YOu need to shoot 1080i 24pA...that's 24p ADVANCED. Shooting with Advanced Pulldown removal means that when you log and transfer, and have REMOVE PULLDOWN checked in the L&T preferences, it will come in as 23.98. If you shoot 1080i 24p...not advanced...all you are doing is shooting the 24p look at 29.97fps.

If you have already shot, you can look at the pulldown removal options Cinema Tools offers (I believe there are 4) and see if any of them will convert the footage properly.

Thanks. Will check out cinema tools. In the meantime, it looks as if a ProRes 422 transcode of my H.264 and the HVX footage seem to look OK in the same ProRes 422 timeline.

Thanks again.

I tried Cinema Tools but the resulting file had an echo in the audio.

Have also found Plural Eyes has some trouble syncing my 2 camera (naturally, given one is at 30 fps and the other at 24), though nudging manually. seems to work.

Am wondering if I could transcode the HVX200 Quicktimes--after Log and Transfer--through Compressor to 24 fps ProRes.

Since my DSLR footage is transcoded to ProRes, my theory is to match frame size and rate.

Workable?

Guess I'll shoot the rest of the project at 1080i24PA.

Actually, if you want to edit at 23.98 with HVX-200 footage, wouldn't you want to shoot at 24PN rather than 24PA? 24PA is still 24 over 30 video just with a different pulldown cadence I believe.

This is an on-going test, you might say. Like many other producers, I'm sure, I've been shooting both DSLR footage @ 1920 X 1080, 23.98 h.264 and HVX 200 P2 footage @ 720PN and @ 1080PA. Mostly, I've been shooting with DSLR, but I've become greatly frustrated with the limits it places on capturing documentary footage and so am looking to do more of a mix of the two cameras.

I think I agree that the best choice is to shoot 720PN on the HVX200 and then transcode to ProRes 422, 23.98.

For anyone who has come to do this routinely, would you recommend a timeline at 1920 X 1080 or 720?

Or a different approach altogether?
