720p 59.94 workflow question
on Feb 20, 2008 at 10:30:41 pm

Ok,

I'm cutting a project where the original tapes are 720p 59.94. The only deck I have is for miniDV tapes. At the end of the project, I have to output a list so the online editor can finish back to 720p 59.94. How should I go about this? If I caputre the DV tapes at 29.97, how do I output a list that will reference back to the original 720p tapes?

I'm on a Dual 2Ghz Power PC G5 with FCP 5.1.4

If all you have is a dv deck you will not be able to capture the tapes.

Do you have tc matched dv dubs of the 720p footage?

Right, well, there's another question. I know I won't be able to capture the 720p tapes (which are on D5, I should have mentioned), but
1.) is there a way to dub D5 tapes with that time code to a DV tape and force (clone) the time code to match?

And 2.) is there a way to capture the DV tapes with 29.97 timecode and somehow tell FCP or convert the footage in a way to match its 59.94 source tapes?

The 59.94 tc is a base 30 timecode, so you should have no problems there.

So

#1), Yes have a professional facility do the transfers and tell them to do a tc slave.

#2) No need to. Capture dv tapes with slaved tc and edit. Recapture 720p for online.

Ok. So when I give them a reference Offline cut, that can just be in 29.97 as well? They shouldn't have any timing problems with that if they dig that into a 59.94 timeline?

Like I said, the timecode is base 30 (each 60p frame gets 1 30 frame number. Essentially there are two frames per number).

Cool, good to know, thanks for the (super-quick) info.

Just make triple sure the facility gets your tc dubs correct.
