Mixed fps (24 and 30p to 50i)
on Aug 12, 2011 at 9:50:48 am

The story goes like this:

I have this footage
- DVCPRO HD 720p60 - 29.97 - w sound
- Avid DNxHD Codec 23.97 - w/o sound

and i need to deliver
- HDTV 1080i50

After reading the forum for a week or so I got lost and more puzzled.
I.m thinking going ProRes with all the footage @ 1080i50 for the edit but not 100% sure.
I.m afraid of sound sync issues...

I would really appreciate any advice!

I would suggest using MPEG Streamclip to convert the footage to Apple ProRes 422(HQ) 1080i50 (shouldn't be any issues with sound sync, Streamclip is smart. And cool). Do your edit in that format. Export the finished file in that format.

And then in Final Cut Pro, create another sequence - with the SD DV PAL i setting that you need. Drop the finished file you exported from the first sequence into the second PAL sequence, click "no" when it asks you if you'd like to change sequence settings, and twiddle your thumbs while it renders.

I haven't worked much in NTSC formats, but I know that FCP handles different framerates with aplomb.

Until now two options:

- Compressor (with frame controls) - never-ending renders but keeps the TC
- MPEG Streamclip - much faster - no TC
