    Mixed framerate problem

    I have footage that was all shot on p2 cards with an HVX200 but some was shot 24p, some 24pn and some in an sd format resulting in 59.94i footage. I used raylight mxfx to convert the 24p to the 24pn (23.94) but I don't know what to do with the 59.94i footage to bring it into the same project. the audio was also all done in camera and I don't know if converting the footage will change it's synch. any advice would be great. the director wants a 24p project but a finished project is the most important factor. I also have dvfilm's dv filmmaker program but I don't know if that would work for what I need to do since the footage is p2. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: Mixed framerate problem

    Geoffrey,

    the easiest way is to cross-convert your different files into a common format (target format), and then import them into MC with the project setting meeting your target project. I usually use "TMPGEnc Xpress 4.0" from Pegasy Inc, see www.pegasys-inc.com It allows you to import files of different formats (1080i, 720P) and converts them to a destination format of your choice. For import into MC,I select DNxHD based Quicktime format of the desired framerate. Try it and you will love it.

    Re: Mixed framerate problem

    Hi Joachim,

    When you convert from interlaced to a progressive format using TmpGEnc, do you setup the deinterlace filter with custom settings or do you use the default?

    Thanks,

    Re: Mixed framerate problem

    I use the default setting. I do this kind of transcoding very often (from 1080i/50 to 1280P/50) and never had any trouble or quality issues.

    Addition: I have recently discovered, that MC imports 1080/50i Quicktime files into a 720/50P project, and creates appropriate 720/50P MXF-files. I had transcoded JVC's MPEG-2 full Hd files from the little HD7 disk recorder (file format is "Tape on Disk", .TOD) into 1080/50i Quicktime files.

    Re: Mixed framerate problem

    the project I have has the audio recorded in camera, will this be an issue when converting? do I just pull the mxf files from the p2 cards? what about the audio?
