Interlacing lines on panasonic HDC-hs700
on Aug 28, 2013 at 6:21:46 pm

Iv been having trouble for months with footage from my Panasonic HDC-hs700. I believe I shot in 1920 by 1080 60p. when I look at the clips in fcp under format it tells me they are 29.97. I'v tried converting them to apple pro res 422 on a converter program but basically I cant get the footage to come out with out horrible scan lines.

anyone know what to do?

Are you SURE you shot 1080p 60? That's the first thing I'd double check.

HOW did you convert the footage to ProRes? What is this "converter program?" There are many that are substandard. The best one to use is ClipWrap2 from divergentmedia.com. Some like BroS0ft are consumer level and flakey.

Also...FCP doesn't really deal with 1080p60 footage, as that is a non-standard format. Non-standard in that there's no delivery method for that frame size and frame rate. TV doesn't do 1080p at 60fps...it does 1080i at 30fps, or 720p at 60fps. DVDs are 30fps or 24fps. BluRay is 24fps or 30fps. The web MIGHT to 1080p60, but the bandwidth required to play that back is insanely high, so most people encode 720p60 or 1080p30...or 24fps.

The only point of shooting 1080p at 60fps is for smooth slow motion. And you obtain that before you bring it into FCP. Convert to ProRes, then use Cinema Tools to conform to 29.97 or 23.98 fps, then bring into FCP.

I converted with Brosoft. I'v been trying samples with 1080 60p. Can you explain the difference between 1080 60p and p60? Im exporting for web and I thought using h.264 could do 1080 60p. For now I guess I will just edit in 30p in fcp. Do you know what I should set my sequence setting to?

Sorry for double posting. I figured out that the footage I had been originally talking about was not 1080 60p. The camera only has four modes to shoot it (HA, HG, HX, HE) so I figured that out.

[Jake Frost] "Can you explain the difference between 1080 60p and p60?"

There are none. 60p Means 60fps. 1080p60 means that it's 1920x1080, 60p. There's also 720p60...which is a more common format and is a frame rate that exists for TV and the web. 1080p60 doesn't.

[Jake Frost] "Do you know what I should set my sequence setting to?"

Edit with the settings you shot, and then export to the deliverable. Although if you shot 1080p60...FCP doesn't do that. use 1080p30.
