[Andy Morin]"I'm editing a shoot that was shot with the HPX-170. it was shot in 720p30, but my final cut keeps referring 720p60 in the timeline. Is doesn't effect the motion at all, so should i worry?"
Nope. You're okay.
But doesn't that camera have a 30 pN setting, which creates true progressive-scan video with a frame rate of 29.97? And saves on file size to boot?
[Andy Morin]"this will be for broadcast, so in a two part question. will the 720p60 be ok?"
Sure. Again, you're good to go. The video will simply have two identical frames every two frames. No big deal. What MIGHT be a big deal is having a capture card that can't deal with 60p; if you master or edit to tape, there could be issues.
