Thanks a lot Noah. I hope to get my head around all the fuss regarding the 50i to 24P process soon. I understand there's the Avisynth route for PC users in NTSC land but... what's a PAL-Mac user to do? Can you clue me on that?
Do you really need p24?
Are you printing to 35mm or delivering in NTSC-Land?
If not, forget about p24 and shoot p25.
That will make easier working with the Panasonic's i50 stuff as well.
50i footage needs to be de-interlaced at high-quality to be used for slo-mo. I thought you were talking about 24 fps footage. IMHO, the best de-interlacer is RS Fields Kit by revisionfx. make a test to check if it's up to your expectations. Of course it's not like a RED One for slo-mo ;-)
