I will be doing a job that involves processing 2K 120fps footage, color correcting, and outputting
to HDCAM. I can't seem to find any info on how to deal with footage that is not at 23.98 or 24 fps.
Can anyone point me in the right direction or provide some tips? I will probably try to use FCP 6.05
and maybe Color.
You'll always set a project frame rate in the range from 23.98 to 60 fps on your Red One, depending on the final presentation.
For slo-mo, you can shoot at higher speeds, but your project will still be running at a frame rate that's supported by FCP – otherwise it wouldn't be slo-mo.

OK, I didn't know that you set a project frame rate in the camera itself...that makes a lot of sense.
So I should be able to use this footage in the new version of Color since it is actually 23.98, I assume.
One other question: Do I set my FCP sequence to a 2k resolution, and then crop to 1920x1080 when outputting through the Kona 3 to HDCAM?
