I've tried looking around for information regarding this and I believe the subject has been touched on many times but I can't find exactly the info I'm looking for.
Having shot the HVX at 1080 24p, what would be the best sequence settings to use. FCP turns the footage into 29.97 and it looks pretty bad in that sequence. I've reversed telecine one clip with CT and it looks pretty good. I'd be ok with doing that except we have a thousand clips that have already been logged. CT seems to make a new clip without the logging info from the original.
Is there a sequence setting where CT isn't needed? OR...is there a way to reverse telecine the finished project? Will just de interlacing the final project work well?
Thanks for the thread. I have read that and others similar and I feel I'm close but.
Shane said to capture and edit in 29.97. Ok but when I do FCP creates the seq settings with the first clip. I noticed that the field dominance is set to "NONE". The footage looks pretty poor albeit I'm looking on a computer monitor. If I change the field to "upper" on the seq settings some frames look better.
Should I leave it to NONE, edit the project and export through Compressor doing a reverse telecine?
