1080i60, 1440x1080 to prores422
on Jan 29, 2019 at 5:00:27 am

Hi,
I have footage shot on a Canon HV-30. It is HDV 1080i60 with frame size 1440x1080 (current size 1888x1062(actual)) and fps 29.96
To edit on FCP7, do i still need to convert this to Prores422?
And if the answer to that is yes, then should i use the original parameters for the footage i mentioned above when i convert?
thanks

Can you use the the canon plugin and long and transfer?

[Warren Eig] " Can you use the the canon plugin and long and transfer?"

No, it's tape...not a digital file, so you have to Log and Capture. BUT...there is a way to capture HDV as ProRes. Only, it'll still be 1440x1080, with anamorphic flags to stretch it out to 1920.

There's a tutorial on that here at the Cow:

Thanks for link.
But I by no means want to recapture the footage.
My question is this: Given the HDV parameters of the footage i stated above, do i still need to convert to Prores to edit in FCP7? And if so, should i keep all the original parameters of my source footage or should I change the frame size, etc?
My project is going to have footage not only from the canon HV-30, but also HD footage shot on a Samsung s9+ phone. So i would need to settle on a sequence setting of the best frame rate, frame size, etc to accommodate these different source materials. I'm only just beginning the editing phase now, so i figure i better make this decision of optimal sequence settings now.
Then I can take my different source materials and transcode them to Prores with a common setting.
Any input on that would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

[raju bhai] "Given the HDV parameters of the footage i stated above, do i still need to convert to Prores to edit in FCP7?"

No. FCP 7 will edit HDV just fine, and you can export a ProRes full scale QT in the end.

[raju bhai] "And if so, should i keep all the original parameters of my source footage or should I change the frame size, etc?"

Keep the original everything. Drop a clip into a new sequence and let FCP make that sequence match the clip settings and use that. Then export ProRes in the end

[raju bhai] "My project is going to have footage not only from the canon HV-30, but also HD footage shot on a Samsung s9+ phone. So i would need to settle on a sequence setting of the best frame rate, frame size, etc to accommodate these different source materials."

OOOOOOOHhhhh.... IN that case...Edit on a ProRes 422 1920x1080 sequence. Frame rate to match the majority of the footage.

thank you! btw, do u know the differnce between the stated frame size and the "current" "actual" framse size? it says frame size is 1920 by 1080, but then says actual is 1440 by 1080. Not sure which one i should use, i imagine the actual size

OK, sorry, now i know this is what I have:
-canon HV-30 footage that is 1440 x 1080, 29.97fps
-flipcam footage that is 1280 x 720, 50fps

I may not use the samsung s9+ footage after all, just the above 2.

So i imagine i should convert both to Prores 422. Just wondering which frame size and frame rate is optimal to accommodate both. I'm not worried about the sync issue as long as the video portion is intact. This is a music video and i don't need the performance to sync up with the visuals so accurately (i can always nudge clips around).

Also, is it ok if i keep the audio at 44.1 khz, or does it have to be converted to 48khz to work well in FCP7?

ok, please lemme know, thank you

Thanks Shane,

Actually. These are the parameters of the footage I'll be using in this project:
-canon HV-30 footage that is 1440 x 1080, 29.97fps
-flipcam footage that is 1280 x 720, 50fps

Should I still transpose to 1920x1080? Neither of the footage is that frames size. Also, mixing 29.97 fps with 50fps. Which frame rate should I choose for best result? (I know it's a tall order mixing such diverse frames rates but I'm not worried about the sync so much since I can nudge clips to fit)

Thanks
