My first post here! I am working on a project shooting with a Canon Xh-A1. My footage is a mix of 25p and 50i HDV. I would normally shoot everything at 25p but the 50i setting allows me to do smooth slow motion. I have a few questions about optimum workflow.
What should my sequence settings be if I want to output progressive footage. Is it best to put all of the 50i and 25p on a 25p timeline, and will this deinterlace the footage, or should I use a 50i timeline and try to de-interlace another way? (I have nattress smart deinterlacer) Do the individual clip settings have to be changed in any way?
Do I need to change the field dominance settings in either the time line or the 50i or 25p clips? I have in the past used a hdv 25p timeline with no field dominance. Does this produce progressive footage? Is this a bad workflow and if so why.
