Hi,

I have a short film to shoot that will be telecined to HDCAM SR at 24 fps.
I intend to shoot at 24fps, the sound man has said the sound should be recorded at 30fps, is that correct?

I'm not sure what the sound man is referring to, as sound (which I assume will be digital) isn't generally referred to by fps during the recording stage. Once transferred, the actual video frame rate will be 23.976 fps. It's best to edit on a timeline that maintains that frame rate. To maintain sync, you may need to slip the audio by approximately one frame every 40 seconds, IF someone is speaking longer than that through a single take. However, in a typical conversation, with edits, maintaining sync should rarely be a problem.

Sounds right... Are you shooting 23.98P? Cus most all sound post is done using offline edits using 29.98 NTSC down conversions.

Hi,

My Ultracam does not have 23.98 so I was hoping to use 24. The transfer & editing will be done in Canada, as I am from Europe the 23.98 has never been an issue before.
