Using a Panasonic HDX900P shooting DVCproHD tape. The boss decreed all video is to be shot in 24p without exception. Our guys are struggling to do this and not see all the blur and temporal artifacting. Apart from adding a 1:48 shutter, and not making fast pans or zooms, any other tricks we can apply on the camera end or in post to minimize motion artifacts? I would shoot in 720/30p if I could, but help me to make this work in the required 24p, please. Editing in final cut, have Cinematools, but never used it before.
I dont think there is really too much we can add to what you already know. We have been doing 24p native for 4-5 years but the advantage we have is in the tapeless workflow we actually shoot 24P (not a pulldown in the camera to 60i).
We run 24N all the way through the pipeline and use advanced pulldown tools (like inside episode or similar) that do a much cleaner job that the Camera will for the pulldown.
I know I am saying go buy P2 cameras but unfortunately I don't think there is much more we can contribute.
