hi, i shoot footage on the hvx200 sp 24p mode on to tape but im having problems with final cut because the footage is not showing as 23.97 but is showing at 29.97 even tough its being imported at 23.97, any suggestions on the workflow?
its intended for distribution, the reason i asked these questions is because i recently shot a documentary using a canon hv40, i shot at 24p but the actual footage was not 24p , but 24p interlaced with 60i so i had to run it trough compressor to de interlace it and make it true 24p, so my question is just leave it as is and import and cut at 29.97 or will this be a problem with the footage being interlaced? or should i just run it trough compressor and make it true 24?
In Compressor you turn on Frame Control and set deinterlace to Reverse Telecine, But if your other footage is 29.97 you may just want to stick with 29.97 or do the Reverse Telecine on that footage also.
WIth the HVX in SD if you want true 24p (23.98) you need to shoot it on 24pA and then remove the advanced pulldown on capture.
If you are going out to the web or to DVD this is what you want to do.
