A shot was recorded in 60i accidentally. The rest of the footage was shot in 24p. What is recommended to
match this footage? This footage was shot on the SDX900 in dvcpro50.

Thanks,

From http://www.nattress....s/products.htm:

I've shot a movie in 24p, but I need to include some normal NTSC video B-Roll

If you are editing your 24p movie in a 24p (23.98fps) timeline then you can use the Standards Converter and it's G Film Converter plugin to convert your NTSC video to 24p. This will now integrate with the rest of the video on a 24p timeline.

However, if you shot 24p with normal 3:2 pulldown and are editing in a 29.97fps timeline, then you can use Film Effects and it's G Film plugin to make your video look like 24p but with 3:2 pulldown added.

I've used a couple Nattress filters and they work, but I've not tried this particular one. Good luck.

If you're in a 29.97fps timeline, use Film Effects, or if you need to go to a 23.98fps timeline, the Standards Converter will do the job. Either way, download the demo and drop me an email if you need any help.

Another option is Adobe After Effects, which I've used to convert various 60i footage to 24p. It works best if the shutter speed wasn't too fast when the 60i was recorded. It also seems to help if there was a little camera movement (smooth handheld, dollies, pans) -- the one time I tried to convert a lockdown shot, I got some weird interlace artifacts.

My main experience with the process was matching a lot of consumer video camera footage to some DVX100 24p stuff. The 60i stuff wasn't that great in the first place, and I think the 24p conversion actually made it look a little better.
