    Can I import 30i Graphics to 24P project?

    I have a 90 minute feature doc that has been finished in 30i digibeta.

    We now need to go to film and would like to convert it to 24P, and "Recreate Title Media."

    Is there anyway we cna do this? We have thousands of graphics and subtitles all done in 30i, and to have to manually re-type them in 24P seems insane, but people tell me that they won't be recognized in 24P mode.

    Is there a work around?

    Does anyone have any insight here?

    Many Thanks

    sorry man i think you're screwed, SN doesn't like mixing framerates in anything, including titles.

    what about exporting them as files with alpha channels to tif sequences or quicktimes then reimporting those into the 24p project.

    keeping in mind if they're animated they will play 20% slower in the 24p project.

    a lot of work and a pain in the ass but maybe less work than rebuilding them all.

    good luck

    There is a way to save some work if the text is from title tool. I have done this mostly with PAL 25 to NTSC 30i and once from 30i to 24. This should save typing but you will have to re-edit them in.

    While in your 30i project, recreate title media into a new bin. Save and close the project. Open this new bin in your 24p project. Press Control and double click the title in the bin. It should open in title tool. Alter the title in some way (empty space anyware on screen) and save. This title should now be able to be edited.

    SN has thrown a wrench into my work-flow so I can't speak absolutely. I thought I had it down in Symphony Meridian. The exception is how the title is made in the first place. When you savew your title originally I've found it does matter if the 4x3 or 16x9 box is checked and what configuration your Avid monitors are in (4x3 or 16x9). It's not fool-proof nor does it always work.

    We use this also to recreate title media from 4x3 to 16x9 and avoiding the format warning. This saves us typing when we have hundreds of subtitles. Hope this helps
