Converting PAL 25p to 30p
on Apr 4, 2011 at 12:47:36 am

I'm stuck in a bind unfortunately not created by myself for a change. I agreed to finish off a project for someone shot on hdv 30p but another person went out and shot the last portion in 25p.

How can I convert the footage to mesh with the 30p, which is where it needs to be for air in the States? My hope is to convert then complete the edit b/c I know we can combine frame rates from the states into one timeline and output without and issue inside final cut, but from Pal at 25p?

Any information would be appreciated b/c I'm stuck and on a tight deadline.

Thanks, usually 60p Mike

You need 5 double frames every second.

Just try what looks best. Hopefully you don't have much car shots :P

Compressor, Natress or Jes Deinterlacer will be the first tries.

...and if they don't work, it's time to open the wallet to get frame rate conversion software like Magic Bullet or Twixtor.
