From scanning the cow forums for a while now, I can tell this is probably the most discussed topic; I apologize for bringing it up yet again BUT I wanted to make sure I got it right:
I have both 24p native (shot on HVX) and 30i footage (shot on a couple different consumer-level HD handycams) that I plan on cutting at 23.98. Our final output is HDCAM tape. I'd like to conform the 30i footage to 24, but obviously if I bring the 30i footage into a 23.98 timeline it will remove frames and be choppy.
What's the best way to conform this footage to 23.98? Does Cinema Tools have a function that will conform all the clips in a batch, or do I have render out every single clip in compressor?
