Converting from US DSLR to European final delivery
on Feb 13, 2012 at 5:07:25 pm

Hello all

Sorry if this has been covered before but I would like to ask what would be the method to convert shots that were taken in the US but the edit is going to place in Europe. To explain:

All shots were taken using 5D MkII with 23.98 fps and it is progressive. I want to convert everything to Apple Pro Res but I am not sure what frame rate to use. The producer wants to retain the 24fps filmic look.

Should I export Pro Res in 24fps or retain the 23.98 and put all converted rushes in a 24p timeline?

The final deliverable needs to be something that should be able to retain good conversion for both NTSC and PAL standards.

I am on FCP 7.0.3

Cheers all

Antonis

Convert to ProRes. Conform with Cinema Tools to 25fps. The footage will speed up slightly, and the audio will have a slight pitch. But, now the PAL people can edit it. And it will still look like 24fps, because 25fps is just one frame more.

Cheers for that Rane

We were thinking of retaining this in the 24fps format (easier to go to 30fps as well as 25fps).

What would someone recommend?

Thanks

23.98 is a universal mastering format. You can convert to 29.97 and 25fps very easily.

Superb. Cheers for the reply back and apologies for the amateurish question.
