editing 59.94 vs 29.97

Hello everyone,

My delivery format for a TV network is asking for XDCAM HD422 (50 mb/s) or XDCAM HD (35 mb/s). HD 1080i/59.94 in 16:9 aspect ratio.

Using multiple cameras of different formats I converted all footage to 1080i/29.97 Apple ProRes 422 and Apple XDCam EX 1080p30 which plays at 29.97.

I used easy setup in FCP for XDCam EX 1080i60 (35 VBR) which sets up the sequence for 29.97. Can anyone tell me if this is correct and will I have trouble exporting 1080i/59.94 for the network in the end?

59.94 at 1080 is 29.97. It's confusing, I know. But 1080i 59.94 means 1080i at 29.97fps. The 59.94 after the "i" indicates FIELDS per second...because it is an interlaced format.

Thanks Shane. Can I edit in a 29.97 sequence and then export into 59.94 to meet their standards? All footage imported as no field dominance so should I change them to upper or lower or leave them at none?

Thanks,

I'm telling you that 29.97 and 59.94 are the same thing at 1080i. It is the same thing...exactly! Just a different way of saying it.
