Hi, I've read the fine manual(s) and faqs and forum threads and just about anything one can get on the internet and still can't get it right.
Have: hvx200/fs-100/fcp 6
Trying to do slo/fast mo. Understand it can either be done 'in camera' (vfr) or with fcp (frc). At least that's my assumption this morning.
None of my settings so far have worked so I won't bother illustrating my profound stupidity.
What I think I should be setting:
REC SETUP: 720/24P
SCENE FILE: 48fps
DVCPRO HD - 720p24
You can't do it in-camera with the FS-100 (yet); perhaps a future firmware update will allow that.
So yes, you'd set 720/24p mode and FILM CAM and set your frame rate to your chosen rate (in this case 48fps). Then, as I understand it, you'd run the Apple Frame Rate Converter utility to strip out the duplicate frames and leave you with a 24fps file with (approximately) 2:1 slow motion.
With that said, you'll have to ask one of the Apple experts here for more info on the process of using the FRC; I'm just pointing out that yes, that's the workflow that you're going to have to follow to get this to work.
Get the most from your DVX camera. The DVX Book and DVX DVD are now available on ebay and at Amazon (http://www.fiftv.com/db)
