23.98 to True24 for DCP
on Mar 26, 2013 at 11:32:07 pm

I am working on getting our reels out of Premiere and converted to True24 for a DCP.

Summary of attempts thus far...
Source content is 4k Scarlet at 23.98FPS -> send to Davinci for grade - output is 422HQ Reel (10mins) ->
Reimport into Premiere onto 24FPS timeline and export Tiff Sequence.

Workflow thus far has been to get a completed reel from our colorist. He's been giving us 23.98, but we decided today to try a true 24 version. Which will be eventually exported as a Tiff sequence.

So - can I take a 24FPS reel and put it into a 24FPS 2k Sequence then export a Tiff Sequence? Or do I need to take aforementioned 24FPS reel and run it in something like Cinema tools first - then bring it back in to export it as a Tiff Seq.

For audio we use an NTSC to FIlm conversion out of Pro-tools - seems to line up. The downside...I don't have the funds to purchase the only Mac DCP player - so I must negotiate to get into the theater to test it - and it's an arthouse. I don't wanna burn their bulb out on my mistakes.

Premiere Pro has framerate conform internally in comparison to Cinema Tools.

I would investigate conforming the 23.976 ProRes from resolve to straight 24 in Premiere and speeding audio to match duration. The audio degredation is minimal and this is common practice to keep visuals pristine.

Not only do you need to use a 24fps timeline in Premiere, you need to right click and change the framerate under "interpret footage" for the 23.976 reel. This avoids frame resembling.
