Hey guys, I've just been delivered content from three DSLRs to edit. I have two different sizes, two compression settings, and three different frame rates. I'm looking for the best approach to get these files to play well together in a sequence. The info for the files is below. Absolutely any help you guys can give me is appreciated! Thanks!

D7000

Which edit system Joe?

And Richard, does Adobe CS5 mix frame rates well? Properly?

Yes... it does it quite well... using same sort of tech as in AE on final render to blend frames as needed.

Personally... I'd go 24 as most of his stuff is that and its easier to go down then up

If using final cut, it's easy. Just drag your 720p video into the timeline, final cut will ask you if you want to set up a sequence according to this clip's properties, click on yes.

Then drag the rest of the clips onto the timeline and they will be automatically conformed to all match the 720p sequence settings. You will have to render but that's okay.

Perhaps in Premiere Pro you don't have to render, I'm not 100% sure on that.

Thanks for your help Steve. I can't seem to get the D90 footage to prompt me to set up my sequence. Perhaps it uses a codec that FCP doesn't recognize?

Did you set up a new project in FCP?

Stick to FCP unless you have a high end machine. The Native H.264 is a new feature and still requires
top notch Graphics Card. If you are on a laptop, transcode to ProRes and you will have alot easier edit.

I agree with Rich, Premier Pro CS5 is great to edit native H.264, but you should work with what you have.
