I'm working on a show for broadcast that is shooting multi-cam with F800s and they are primarily shooting 1080 59.94. We are editing in prores, but I am wondering if it would be best to keep 59.94 all the way through or would it be fine to convert it to 29.97? Will this change the look? Will there be issues with Onlining the show?
[Juan Salvo]"There is now the additional issue of 1080p59.94... which is gaining in popularity."
Only for shooting slow motion. And only on a few consumer cameras (Panasonic M700...something like that) and real high end cameras.
There is no 1080p60 (1080p59.94) deliverable format. Not for the web, not on tape, not for broadcast, not on BluRay. 1080 is a 30 frame deliverable format. ONly 720p 59.94...60fps...is a broadcast and BluRay supported frame rate.
