Avid 25p vs 50i Project - Consequences of working progressive
on Oct 14, 2015 at 5:04:31 pm

Hi all,

I am used to working in Interlaced environments due to this being out delivery format for most broadcasters.

I am ingesting for a large project and they have stated they would like to cut at 25p as that is what we are filming at. They are cutting DNx36 the majority of which has been AMA linked and transcoded down from various formats.

My question is what are the consequences of staying P and not transcoding everything to interlaced.

There is likely to be interlaced archive and additional/accidental interlaced footage which will need to go into the edit and be conformed at a later date. How does Avid handle this. Will it just motion adapt it? With this is mid

Plan at the end would be to conform back to the majority 25p footage and transcode to 185. Can this relink be done in an interlaced project or will I have to change the project format after relink every time in order to transcode? I can not test this at the moment as much of the footage is form PDW XDCAM disks

thanks for any help
