    24p to 29.97 Help

    I am very new to working with 24p projects and I need some help or clarification.

     

    We recently shot a project at 24p.  The final output is going to be to BetaCam SP (29.97 fps.)  If I just import the 24p footage into a 29.97 project will Avid convert the footage automatically or is there another step I have to take...or is there a better workflow altogether?

    Thanks!

    The idea is that you work in 24p, then do a Digital Cut at 29.97.

    Okay, let me throw this wrinkle in...I will be downcoverting HD footage to the BetaSP.  Is changing the project settings to SD the best way to do this?

    With a Nitris (DX), I think you should be able to downconvert to 29.97 without switching the format. Otherwise, you could just switch the project to SD 23.976p, and from there you get to do a digital cut at 29.97i.

    The advantage is that you will keep proper pulldown cadence throughout your final product. Good for progressive displays, DVD, or even filmout.
