I have a short project I shot in 24 fps. I shot with a Canon 7D and have 1920 x 1080 h.264 .mov files.
I just looked over final export specs for this project -- and realized I'll need a final export of 29.97 fps in an apple intermediate codec.
I'm assuming I need to recompress BEFORE I edit -- any recommendations on compression formats?
OR, should I edit as 24 fps and then do a final compression or conversion?
Should I use a 3:2 pulldown? (Never used it before, don't know exactly how it works, other than it's occasionally used in this situation.)
New to creative cow, and an amateur editor. Any help appreciated.
