We shot on SDX900 24P (and it looks like it was Non-Drop)-

I am delivering a 29.97 letterbox DigiBeta-

a) is non drop correct/will it matter
B) What settings in FCP do I use to capture-

I have a Blackmagic card-and I am capturing SDI-

lots of codecs to choose-

any advice-

I know Id like to keep it widescreen throughout-

and PS we shot 25 bit-

after I capture are there ways of copying the footage to another system (maybe at a DV setting) to edit then bring the project back to finish?-If there is a way...what is it?

thanks

Could be drop frame since the tape is actually recording a 59.94i / pulled down conversion of your 24p. You should just create a timeline in FCP that suits your needs, DF if you need to finish for broadcast for an exact time limit, or NDF.

Over SDI, you can capture using whatever offline codec suits you, DV is a good offline format, then do uncompressed 10-bit for the online timeline. Just make sure it's anamorphic 16:9, and don't letterbox until your final output.
