How to tell if the tape is 24p or 24pa
on Sep 5, 2009 at 2:55:46 am

I just went through a bunch of postings but I'm still unclear. This is one of those "my friend is giving me some tapes from a long time ago and doesn't know how it was shot" situations.

All I know is that the tapes were shot using a DVX100a.

I'm wondering what the process is using Final Cut (I have fcp7) to figure out if the footage was shot as 24p or 24pa.

Do I do 2 diff captures (or maybe by process of elimination, only 1)? What is the setting I should use? Do I use the 29.97 Advanced Pulldown Removal and then look what the cadence is?

EDITED: Actually, now that I think about it, I'm worried about asking this next question. Are there any other settings it could be?

Thanks in advance.

24pA has an interlaced frame every third frame, otherwise it's 24p.
