Converting 23.98 to 24 from final cut pro.

Haven't been able to find this answer...

A festival wants to format our film on DCP - and asked for Apple pro res files to be 24fps. My sequence for an 86 min film is 23.98. The festival specifically asked it not be 23.98. What is the best way to do the conversion so audio stays in sync and I have no issues. I feel a bit leery trying to just export it via compressor and changing the frame rate there. I have also been given advice to use cinema tools.

Does anyone have any advice on this?

Thank you!

Contact companies that do the DCP conversion...ask them. This isn't something you can do with COMPRESSOR...

Hello,
Thank you kindly for your response. The festival gave us info on 'how to' and this is what they suggested we do and send them, it just seemed 'too easy' to me, and I want it to play correctly. Thoughts?

1- Started with 80gb Apple Pro Res quicktime (.mov) file. Make a
duplicate of your original. Do the conform process on the duplicate file.
2- opened Cinema Tools, set everything upon opening to 24 fps
3- 'create a new database'
4- import clip (import the duplicate file of the movie).
5- open clip (or preview clip - can't remember the exact term).
6- bottom right of that screen is a button that says "Conform" - when you
click it, it'll show several options. One of them was to conform to 24
fps. Select that option.

Does this seem like the correct steps? It seemed too good to be true to be that easy...

That'll do it. As long as your audio and video are in the same file. And then you take that file to the place that does the DCP...OK...
