720/24p to 1080i60
on Nov 16, 2012 at 7:49:21 pm

Hi all,

I am encoding for broadcast for the first time and have been told to encode:
DVCPro HD:
Format: Quicktime Movie
Compression Setting: DVCPro HD 1920x1080i60
Compressor Native Raster: 1280x1080 (1920x1080)
Frame Rate: 29.97

Unfortunately, we have been shooting for web and haven't thought about broadcast, so most of our footage is 24p. Is there a way using FCP/Compressor/MPEG Streamclip to create the required files?

Every place I've seen has been suggesting a 3:2 pulldown using AE, but I unfortunately do not have the Adobe suite.

Thanks for your help,
Will

You're going to have problems, sorry to say. I don't think Apple's stuff can insert the 3:2 pulldown necessary to get your 23.976 stuff to 29.97...

...and those are accurate frame rates, incidentally. Don't believe that 23.98 or 24p hooey. That's just shorthand for the actual frame rate.

However, After Effects does a simply MARVELOUS job of introducing 3:2 pulldown. How badly do you want the job?

Thanks for the response, Dave. I wish I could afford After Effects, unfortunately I'm working with a highly limited budget... (i.e. $0).

You can add 3:2 pulldown using Compressor.

How would I do the 3:2 pulldown using Compressor?

I'm encoding the files using Compressor now with the exact settings I need. Will it automatically accommodate for the different frame rates?

Two words: custom preset.

After Effects has a 30 day free trial. It is also rentable at $79 / month.

But it has a learning curve. Easier and quicker would be FCP X. Drop your 720p24 in a 1080i sequence and export. Presto you're done. It too has a 30 day free trial.
