I will be working on a project that will be shot with a Panasonic DVX 100B, SD in 24p. I was wondering if it is possible to then capture the footage in FCP using a camcorder (Panasonic PV-GS 500) that does not have a 24p function. In other words, can I play back the SD 24p footage from the non-24p camcorder in order to capture it in FCP?
Yes this is possible since the DVX100 does not shoot native 24p. Since it records in 60i to give a 24p look, any camera that can play back 60i DV footage will be able to be used as a capture device.
