Codec Emergency

I have a Wedding that is overdue and it was shot with a DSLR and a JVC-100 camera in HD. I now want to make a SD disc. I mastered one through compressor with 2 pass 2 hour and it had bad jitter everywhere. Can someone give a good workflow for this type of project? I am going to try ProRes now. Thanks in advance for your help!

Are you having frame rate issues, as in mixed frame rates for the footage? Have you confirmed the frame rates match in the FCP Browser? Did you convert the DSLR footage to ProRes prior to editing? Do you have any 3:2 pulldown that needs to be removed?

Hi Dave,
I did not convert to ProRes and what is the 3:2 pulldown?
Thanks,
Patrick Morrow

With the exception of DSLR's, HD cameras that fit within a wedding photographer's budget that shoot 24p at 1080 contain 3:2 pulldown. It's at a 29.97 frame rate. I must be removed prior to editing. I understand that it can be removed automatically at Log & TRANSFER time.

Which brings us back around to the frame rate issues, no?

Do yourself a favor: Highlight the footage in the FCP browser. Scroll until you can see the footage's codec and its frame rate. If the footage ain't in Prores 422 and the frame rates don't match, you have problems.

Just to add: And probably the DSLR is making 30psf instead of 29,98.
