23.98 NDF to DF for broadcast
on Dec 11, 2009 at 4:00:37 pm

I've done lots of searching but haven't been able to really find an answer to my question/problem.

I am editing an hour long show that needs to time out at 44:30 including 6x10 seconds of blacks for breaks.

I'm editing 720p23.98 material and am trying to figure out a way to set this up so it times out properly when down converting to Beta SX.

I am currently working in a 23.98 timeline and thought it may be easier to copy everything to a 59.94 timeline but when I copy a sequence over alot of the audio levels change, audio clips are out of sync with their respective video tracks and there are gaps between clips.

Am I missing something here? Is there an easier way to do this?

I've read about the timecode calculator, using slugs to make it time out properly but I still can't wrap my head around it.

Read MORE about using the TIMECODE CALCULATOR:

And what I originally did without it...

ok. i downloaded it.
can you tell me if I'm doing this right?!
it looks like 23.98 DF 44:30;00 converts to 44:27:08 NDF. Does that mean I make my 23.98 NDF sequence edit 44.27:08 in length?
And for the breaks do I just make the 10 seconds black slugs within my NDF sequence? WIll those time out to ten seconds once dumped out to DF?

[Justin Pokrant] "it looks like 23.98 DF 44:30;00 converts to 44:27:08 NDF"

Right...

[Justin Pokrant] " Does that mean I make my 23.98 NDF sequence edit 44.27:08 in length?"

Yes.

[Justin Pokrant] "And for the breaks do I just make the 10 seconds black slugs within my NDF sequence? "

Yup.

[Justin Pokrant] "WIll those time out to ten seconds once dumped out to DF? "

Yes. You only drop 2 frames of timecode for every min of footage (except every 10th minute). So 10 seconds is 10 seconds in DF and NDF.
