[Shane Ross] "[Adam Smith] "1) Record in 720-24pN (native) mode, there by creating a true 24p (with no pulldown) movie. Any other 720p format will follow HD 720p spec and pad out the selected frame rate to 60 (59.94)." Shoot that format and you are now cutting 23.98, NOT 29.97. Jeremy is right, if you want 720p at 29.97, then you need to shoot 720p 30PN. Only that format will get you 29.97."

I suppose I wasn't clear in my post... I'd actually intended my reply to answer two things, how to shoot 24p without getting 24-over-60, and how it made more sense to me to edit that footage in a 23.98 sequence, adding pulldown on output rather than working directly in a 29.97 sequence.

Indeed 30pN works well if you don't require 24fps, but the additional combing bugs me. Maybe I just need to sit farther back from the TV, heh.
