24pN question
on Aug 16, 2008 at 6:11:14 am

I have pored through many well written posts on the below matter, but still feel like some questions are unanswered.

I shot 24pN footage (used because of 60i footage mixed), several hours worth, and am (hopefully) outputting to DVD in 23.98fps. I edited the 24pN footage on a 29.97 timeline, cadences not pulled down from original capture in FCP 5.14. When I burned a DVD using Compressor of the footage, it was horrendously interlaced, but looks fine on a SD monitor.

I debated using Cinema Tools to convert the footage to 23.98, but the results looked jittery and artifacting was prevalent. After converting to 23.98, do you remove the advanced pulldown in FCP?

For those who shot in 24pN using a DVX100, what was the best process to maintain a more progressive look on, say, an HD display or monitor? There is so much information on the 2:3:3:2 pulldown, that the 2:3:2:3 issues (interlaced images on a monitor, for example) seem unanswered.

I apologize if my questions have been answered previously.

Well by definition you can't get a progressive final version because you shot 24p with a 3:2 pulldown not easily removable. That's what 24pA is for- which is the format I recommend shooting 99% of the time for its easy pulldown removal. With 29.97 which is basically what you're stuck with there's not much to be done with poor display on a monitor.
