720p 59.94 or 720p 29.97?
on Nov 9, 2007 at 6:41:04 pm

I am working on a project that needs to be delivered at 720p 29.97.

We shot footage at 720p 29.97 as well as some offspeed footage (8fps, 4 fps, 12 fps etc) and need to know the proper way to capture this stuff. I was hoping for a 29.97 capture preset but I can't find one in Final Cut and when I try to make a new preset it doesn't give me the option to capture in 29.97 in the quicktime video setting input, just 23.98 or 59.94.

It does however give me the option to set the FPS to 29.97 if i choose to.

I have so far been capturing all the footage at 720p 59.94 and working in a 720p 59.94 sequence. Is that the correct way to do it? Or is there a way to capture at 720p 29.97 and work in a 720p 29.97 timeline?

Also, there was some stuff apparently shot at 23.98 accidently but I don't have any log sheets or any indication of when or what was shot at that frame rate. Is there a way to tell what footage is shot at what frame rate when logging and capturing?

Web delivery??

The SMPTE spec for 720p is to always play out at 60 fps with. Any tape based project would have to play in a 59.94 timebase.

Yes, It's for the web primairly but also for DVD. Last year the project was shot and edited at 720p 23.98 so it was a bit choppy on the internet . This year they decided they wanted 30 fps shot at 720p.

Am I correct in capturing and editing at 720p 59.94 DVC Pro HD?

Thanks

yes. Your Panasonic VTR will automatically do a 2:3 pulldown and convert your 23.98 footage to 59.94. Just choose 720p 59.94, and you will just fine. If you need to downconvert to Standard Def, the Kona control panel will do this for you in real time.
