23.98 Panasonic footage device control
on Jul 14, 2011 at 3:19:23 am

I am loading some 23.98 footage via HDSDI and rs422 into a 1080p 23.98 Prores project using the 1400 deck set at 23.98. It comes in looking fine, no duplicate frames - but the TC in FCP is in 29.97, with skipping numbers. I was using the panasonic VFR 59.97 device control. I tested with a reconform and sure enough, it did not come in frame accurate. I then switched to Sony 23.98 device control and all the clips came in frame accurate, and a reconform worked great. Is this the norm? Why no 23.98 device control for Panasonic or am I missing something? And will I be OK using the Sony protocal - all seems fine!

And am I correct using a 1080p VFR 23.98 project or should I be using 1080 psf 23.98? I am going to cross-post into the Panasonic forum as well.

Thank you,
Kim

Because your footage is 1080, it is indeed 29.97 if you didn't remove the pulldown. You may be able to do a Reverse Telecine to remove the pulldown and get to the proper frame rate.
