C100 not recoding 24p
on Jul 29, 2016 at 8:36:36 pm

I know the C100 (Mark I) does not record true 24p (23.976) but interprets the file. In the past, when I selected 24p, either Premiere or FCPX would recognize the file as 24p (23.976) and everything would be fine. Now, even thought the camera is set as 24p, PP and FCPX say the file is 29.97.

If I drop the file in an AVCHD 23.976 timeline in Premiere I get flickering.

Anybody have this problem or know how to fix it?

Is it playing back at a higher speed than normal? What happens if you right click and Modify -> Interpret Footage -> 23.976 in the bin?

Speed is the same (normal). That fixes the flickering and seems to work. Thanks!

But why are the editing systems (and Media Encoder) seeing it as 29.97 instead of 23.976 like they USED too? It would be a pain to always have to interpret the footage...

No clue. I'd hunt through the Premiere preferences and see if there's some setting box clicked that is causing your media to be interpreted as 29.97 on import. Yeah, it's a drag to interpret it every time, but if you can't figure out the root cause, you're only losing about 10 seconds on any given import.

Maybe it's something in the camera. I dunno.

This also happens with FCPX, so is it a camera thing, not in the NLE?

There's your answer. Yes, if both NLEs are reading the files the same way, I'd bet dimes to dollars that it's a camera setting. If you want really definitive proof, see if someone else's edit station reads it the same way.

The C100 does record true 24p (23.976). Are you setting the C100 to record 24p or 24PF? If you record 24PF you have to enable 3:2 pulldown to make it true 24p. You should never ever ever record 24PF.
