Two Questions - SD to HD Conversion and DVX100 24p Advanced
on Nov 12, 2013 at 5:42:24 am

I recently had the 35mm negative from my grad school thesis film re-transferred in HD. However, part of the project was also shot using the 24p Advanced mode of the DVX100. Just to clear up why I used the DVX100, I finished my thesis in 2004.

Anyways, the in-camera matte was used on the DVX100 and the 35mm segment, while shot 4:3, also used a 1.85:1 matte in-camera. Now that everything is 16:9, I'm going to crop the film in post so the black bars from the DVX100 video are eliminated and the video becomes 1.78:1 and I'm also going to crop the 35mm film to 1.78:1, as the difference between that and 1.85:1 is negligible.

Obviously I need to upscale the DVX100 footage to 1080. I'm clear on how to do that using Compressor, but I'm wondering if I should set the Anti-alias and Details Level sliders to anything in particular, since I am upsizing.

My other question is this. The retransfer of the 35mm film was done at 23.98 fps and the DVX100 footage was shot at 24p Advanced. Back when I first edited this in 2004, since the 35mm film was transferred at 29.97 fps, I didn't remove the pulldown from the 24p Advanced footage when I imported it into Final Cut. Now, since the 35mm film was retransferred at 23.98, is there a way to take the original DXV100 sequence from Final Cut, which is at 29.97, and remove the pulldown and make the footage 23.98 without having to reimport and re-edit?

Sorry for any confusion!
