    Varicam 59.94 Footage mix and match into 29.97 timeline?

    Finally got my hands on some video chicken soup in witch someone cut with
    varicam 720 59.94 footage in a 30I project for offline.  Now the online sequence
    reflects clips labeled in the timeline as 59.94 and mix and match is putting a
    200 percent motion adapter not to mention the decomposed clips won't capture for
    the AE's.  I don't know the whole food change here but the offline of this stuff
    was done on Ver. 5 and I'm on Ver. 4.  I would assume the only way to do this
    was if the Varicam footage was captured in a 720 project and then the bin opened
    in the 30I offline project.  This seems related to issues I've not had to deal
    with in onlining mix and match sequences.  Given that the original clips had to
    be captured in project compatible with the source material how do you decompose
    such a sequence for online?  Is it a standard
    decompose and then create bins of the various frame rate format clips and open
    projects compatible to those clips and capture there?  At this point I think the
    AE's are just going to recapture and eye match.  Trying to figure out how to
    avoid this confusion in the future.

    Select the Export Decompose option in the Decompose dialog. This will show the Source Rate of the clip and allow for a target rate to be set.

    For mixed frame rate project, it is standard that a project that matches the frame rate must be created for the clips to be captured.

    The 720p/59.94 will have to be captured in that project type. I'm not sure why you feel you need to eye match these clips.
