Better looking conversion... 30p>24p or 25p>24p
on Jan 5, 2012 at 1:13:34 am

I got a small contour action cam thing recently, and I want to use it to spice things up and get some different angles on our next documentary.
The other cameras shoot in 24p, which is what I edit and master in, but it will eventually go to broadcast (NTSC).

I have only two choices of frame rates with the little camera: 25p and 30p. What's going to make a better looking conversion to 24p? I tested and discovered that 25p is better in low light, so that's a plus. What do you say?

25p, if you don't need to worry about sync sound. Convert to ProREs...then Conform with Cinema Tools to 24fps...done.

basically that would speed up the audio/video using cinema tools right?
Have sync sound I think will be needed. Converting to prores, then right into final cut pro would mean final cut will drop one frame a second though right? Would it look bad? Then I wouldn't have to worry about having the time go out of sync. or am I missing something?

If you need to keep things in sync, then 30fps to 24fps would be the better option. Conforming 25 to 24 would throw things off.

[Shane Ross] "If you need to keep things in sync, then 30fps to 24fps would be the better option. Conforming 25 to 24 would throw things off."

I would suggest the opposite. 25 to 24 is such a slight slow down that you can do the same to the audio and not notice the pitch change. I can recommend Episode 6 for this but Compressor may do it as well.

Yes, but any amount of slowing will make it lose sync with audio recorded on a different device.
Thank you both though.
It's going to be daylight for all the shots i think, so 30p will be fine. and the extra frames will allow me to slow it down a bit in post if needed.
