I have a client who already has some footage shot on a DVX-100 at 24P. She wants me to shoot some more footage for the same project, but my camera, a JVC GY-DV500 is a regular 60i (30 FPS) camera. Can she mix the two on a FCP-5 time line, or do we need to shoot every thing in 24P?
Mixing 24P and 60i

You can mix them, it's just a lot of rendering. If you can, I'd recommend shooting with the same camera; they don't cost much to rent. It also depends on how you're going to screen the finished work as to what the most practical solution might be and how noticeable it is. Also, you could just not remove the pulldown on her tapes (they're technically still 60i) when you capture them, and then everything should still be regular DV with no extra rendering. But the frame rate will look different, not to mention the Cinegamma (which i assume she used). Or you could run your JVC footage through Magic Bullet or something to emulate her look.
