I am using XDCAM for the first time (Usually use P2) and the Video was shot 1080i60 (50Mb/s). I used the XD Cam Transfer and everything seemed fine, but I have noticed in FCP that the Frame Rate is 29.97, not 59.94. Anyone know what's up? Also, the video has some aliasing? Is there something I can do for that? The footage was shot in Drop Frame.
Make a study about 'interlace'
(and yes, that will set you back a couple of days before you understood everything. Short story, your material is fine, you are in for a lot of problems unless you catch up with modern technologie. And with that i mean technology that goes back some 80 years.)
