Hi,
I am editing a project where i have footage mainly from sony camcorder (AVC HD,1440*1080 ,25 fps). I converted it into apple prores 422 (1440*1080 , 25 fps). In FCP i set my sequence setting to apple prores 1440*1080 25 fps and started editing. then i got footage from canon 5d (1920*1080,23.976). this i converted to apple prores 1980*1080 ,25 fps and imported to the project. but the problem i face now is i hav some old stock footage in 29.976 fps. what should i do to bring it to 25 fps.I have used mpeg stream clip for conversions. when i convert 29.976 to 25 they video has got some problem in moving shots.

1)What is the best method to convert 29.976 to 25?
2)If in future if i get footage with different resolutions like canon 5d 1920*1080 and avchd 1440*1080 what should be th best sequence settings.

i want to take final exports in HD and DVD .

Hey Anzar, Nice to see you here :)

Why is your AVC HD footage 1440x1080 after conversion ? Your final timeline will be 1920x1080 square pixel right?

And what about your old 29.976 fps footage? Is it HD ?

i had used clipwrap software to convert avchd mts files so it gave an output of apple prores 422 1440*1080 and i started the project with the timeline settings in that . this 5d and 29.97 footage came later. 29.97 is SD footage which i had taken from a dvd. 99 % of my footage is from the sony avchd so i used the settings of it. but i want to know what is the ideal settings if i hav different raster size and frame rate footage.
how r u . will meet u once i come to mumbai.

It makes sense to work in square pixel 1920x1080, when your output is going to be HD as well.
And if you have SD footage with HD then better up-convert it.
Try using compressor with motion control settings enabled. You will need to do some trials.
