    24 FPS HD Digi --> 25 FPS SD PAL Digi --> 24 FPS Project and EDL for Reconform

    Hi guys,

    We received a feature film on a 24 fps HD Digi (may be 23.97 exactly) that we downcoverted to a 25p fps SD PAL digi so that we could take the footage into our Avid Adrenaline System (which does not support HD footage) and create a 2-min trailer. We imported the footage into a 24 fps project, from which we would then export a 24 fps EDL that we could use to reconform the HD footage in an online suite. However, it doesn't work! Please could you advise if this is a possible workflow, and if so, how to make it work? If not, what would you do?

    Many thanks for you help!

    What part doesn't work? Steps are:

    HD24 Master
    Downconvert to SD as a 4.1% speed up
    Capture in PA 24p SD project (timecode is now 25fps)
    Highlight START column and command-D/control-D into the TC24 column
    Select "convert" from the dialog box that pops up
    Create EDL based on that column for conform.
