we just finished our 35mm student film which we put through the Digital Intermediate at a 2K reolution. I just received my 2k files and exported them as a 24 fps 720x480 anamorphic uncompressed video.
When I take this 24fps file and import it into Adobe Encore, it prompts me to convert it to mpg, but instead of 24fps uses 23.973 fps. If I try to feed Encore a 24 fps mpeg created with CCE it still wants to convert it. Why is that?
I thought since my source material is progressive at 24 fps i should be able to make a 24 fps DVD. Was I mistaken? Is there no such thing as a true 24 fps DVD? I thought I was able to make a 24 fps DVD which if played through a Progressive Scan DVD player to a Prgoressive able TV will just show at 24 fps, and if played to a regular TV will play at 29.97 through 3:2 pulldown done by the DVD player.
I'd truly appreciate if someone could shed some light on my confusion.
