    Canon EOS 500D 720p30 Import?!

    Hi,

    Sry for my english.

    i filmed using the Canon Eos 500D with 720p30. My Avid version is 5.0.3.9.

    The best setting for editing in Avid is 720p29.97, i tought. But when i cut the material in the Sequence it puts an motion effect on it, speeding up the material by 100,10%.

    Also i´m getting ghostartifacts. I think because the effect creates new "inbetween frames".

    The Feedback from the programm is also very slow. So editing isn´t really enjoyable.

    Why isn´t there true 720p30? i thouhgt 720p29.97 is also 30fps but the timecode is the difference. so why does avid speed the material up and creates new frames?!

     

    Hope you can Help me.

     

    EDIT: i imported the material using AMA (Link to AMA Files)

    It's because there isn't a broadcast TV standard for 30fps only 29.97.

    The 500D is shooting 30fps not 29.97 so Media Composer is adding the motion adapter to adjust the speed to make it run right (this would be important if you had seperate recorded sound to sync up)

    There is a console command you can type that will tell MC to ignore the fps of the source and bring in at the project frame rate "ignoreqtrate true" however this maynot work unless the QT file has no audio.

    Alternatively look at Video Tools sheds QTchanger app. That allows you to reflag the QT frame rate on a file and also lets you set a real timecode and reel number.
