Clips showing as 30fps when filmed at 24fps
on Feb 19, 2010 at 5:01:15 pm

When shooting with my Canon Vixia HF200 in MXP mode and my frame rate set to 24fps, after I import my clip in FCP through log and transfer and check it in the item properties under format it's coming up at 29.97.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks

Hi John,
I don't know that camera, and I'm a PAL-lander, but I guess that you have recorded p24 with Pulldown.
There are 24 real pictures, but some are repeated to reach the standard 29'98fps.
I guess that on Log&Transfer the Pulldown may be removed.
Look for the option.

That option is checked, but I'm still getting the same result.

Yup. I found this little tidbit about the camera on the B&H Photo web site:

"FRAME RATE: 60i, 24p Progressive (records at 60i), 30p Progressive (records at 60i)"


It also records in AVCHD, which could present another challenge. Looks like our boy ought to crack open the User's manual once in a while.
