Bringing Canon C300 59.94 Footage into FCP 7

Hi,

I'm having problems playing back footage shot in 59.94 with the c300 in slow motion when using the Log and Transfer in FCP 7. When I log and transfer the footage, it converts it to 29.97 automatically, but it is not playing back in slow motion (or if it is it is not noticeable). How do you convert c300 footage shot in 59.94 into slow mo and onto a 23.98 sequence?

Thanks!

Hi Ken

Use Cinema Tools to conform the footage to your desired frame rate. It will then run at half speed. Before you do this make a copy of the media you wish to conform and work on the copies as its a destructive process.
This tutorial is PAL 50 to 25 but exactly same applies to 59.94 footage.

Did you shoot 1080? 1080i at 59.94 is 29.97. The "i" means INTERLACED, and interlaced is 2 fields per seconds. 59.94 is the fields per second, so 59.94 fields per second is 29.97 FRAMES per second.. 720p 59.94 is 60fps. So if you shot 1080i 59.94...log and transfer will bring it in at 29.97fps.

Shane is of course quite correct, I rather hastily jumped to the conclusion you were talking frames but now I think about it I am not sure the C300 shoots in 50 or 60 frames at 1080 but only interlaced at that rate. I think you can shoot 60 frames at 720 only.

Hi Neil, thanks for your response and help. Turns out Shane was right and it was shot 1080 59.94i, but still confused why it won't play back in slow motion when it automatically converts it to 29.97? Do you have any suggestions of how to get a great slow motion look converting the 29.97 pro res files to a 23.98 timeline?

Thanks again for you help.
Keri

[Keri Oberly] "Turns out it was shot 1080 59.94i, but still confused why it won't play back in slow motion when it automatically converts it to 29.97?"

As I said...59.94i IS 29.97fps. If you shot 1080i59.94...you shot 29.97fps. There is no smooth slow motion because you shot 30fps. 1080i 59.94 is 29.97.

[Keri Oberly] " Do you have any suggestions of how to get a great slow motion look converting the 29.97 pro res files to a 23.98 timeline?"

Use Cinema Tools to CONFORM...but really, 30fps slowed to 24fps won't produce anything dramatic. You need to actually shoot 60fps. 720p60 is 60fps. And there are rare cameras (mainly consumer level, oddly) that shoot 1080p60.

1080p60 is 60fps. 1080i59.94 is 29.97fps.
