Hi everyone,
Please go easy on me, but, I know my little comsumer video camera films at 50i (PAL)and when I edit I have to de-interlace (or is it interlace? can never remember) anyhow I'm looking at buying an XL1s, now I know that films at 50i and also 24p. The question being what benifits do filming in 50i or 24p bring and what difference does it making in editing.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Ewan

First off, what is your destination for your project? Are you upconverting to film? (Then yes, the 24p conversion is an integral part of the process) Or, do you simply plan to out put it to DVD? This should be the only factor as far as changing frame rates/interlacing. If the camera shoots 50i and the DVD plays back the same where you live, you shouldn't be converting anything... Leaving it unchanged will bring you the least headache... Some folks think the 24p "Film Look" is cool because this is the frame rate that film uses, but a lot of folks like myself feel it's a waste of time to do this... Mainly, it was shot on a DV camera, no one will make the mistake thinking it was shot with a 35mm film camera... Let the subject matter speak for itself.... Just my opinion... If you like the 24p look, nothing wrong with that, and if the camera/editing software do this natively, then happy editing!

Thanks mate, at last a straight forward answer without getting all technical. As all my stuff is to DVD then I suppose there is no need for 24p, and I can stop torturing myself and quit reading about it.

Thanks again

The XL1s does NOT shoot at 24P anyway. It has a "frame" mode but that's it.

dont overlook 24P ! I have had people ask if the footage was shot on 35mm film. It gives you a look that is very similar to how a film camera behaves. In my opinion, that is an invaluable setting and look.

keep researching.
