My question is, if I shot all kinds of mixed formats on a P2 card (some of them requiring pulldown, others not such as the 24pN format), am I still able to import them all at once? When I attempt to do so I'm given the option to remove pulldown. But will FCPX know when it gets to the 24pN footage not to remove any pulldown? Similarly, will FCPX automatically know the difference between 24p pulldown and 24pA pulldown as if I was feeding it only one category/format of such clips at a time?
Please let me know if you understood my question. Hopefully I communicated it clearly
Generally speaking- yes. Although I seem to remember there might be some formats you have to set the camera to first before they'll appear on the card if you're using the camera itself to transfer. (This is remembering using that camera many years ago before the advent of the car you understand so my memory might be fuzzy).
