I am soon to edit a Documentary in FCP which will be shot primarily using RED. Although a UK production, and delivered on PAL, all the archival material will be NTSC. I am therefore wondering if I would not be best having them shoot at 23.98, and editing 23.98 also. Can anyone confirm that this would be the sensible way to go?
Another solution -far superior than any software conversion- would be to organize all the NTSC footage and us a hardware based formats converter such as Teranex to convert all the NTSC 29.97 to PAL 25.
The results will be MAGNIFICENT!
