I have recently purchased an HF100, and have imported footage into FCP 6.0.4
Although I have chosen the 30p setting on the camera while shooting, when I first attempt to place clips in the timeline, it prompts me saying it is switching the sequence setting to the "correct" settings - which are HDTV 1080i.
If I look at the info of the capture, it says 29.97 for frame rate.
Can anyone tell me if the 30p is simply a 'trick' for the look of 30p (and not really progressive), and whether I should still be editing at the suggested 1080i?
Do I have to mess with pulling/dropping frames?
Also, should I export choosing deinterlace?
Or am I doing something wrong in the import section of the process???
I have Toast which will convert using other Codecs - woudl that make more sense??
