I watched Noah's video on the DVX100. I shot in 24PA.
Since I am not using the latest version of FCP. (I am using 5.1.4)I do not have some of the settings. I can't check anamorphic when I use the pull down setting in the capture settings..and there is no box to check the : remove advanced pulldown and duplicate frames from firewire,,,,
I shot in the squeeze mode.
I would hate to have to install FCP2 now...
What should I do?
I had to start the project yesterday. All the footage has been digitized.
It seems as if the footage is coming in as anamorphic even though there is no place to check that in the capture settings. The box is checked in the bin.
Otherwise I followed all your instructions for 24pA. I did shoot in the squeeze mode and want to make sure it will look okay. In your dvd you seem to be shooting 4:3 and do not mention the squeeze mode in the section on post production for 24pA.
So...I have always been told not to upgrade in the middle of a project- do you agree?
When we shot that DVD squeeze mode did not exist yet. But it doesn't matter as much in the import dialog- if the checkbox is checked in your bins and it looks right in the sequence you're all set. And no I would not recommend upgrading in the middle of a project, but that said, when is it not in the middle of a project. :)
Noah, actually the DVD does address the squeeze mode. That is why I bought it in the first place. For my last project I had to do something for a flat screen TV and no one seemed was able to help me with the squeeze mode. That is when I discovered your DVD.
When I looked at the post-production section, I decided to change from 24p to 24pA for this next project based on the way you discuss it.
And yes...I am always in the middle of a project but made myself a promise to upgrade after this one no matter what.
