Thanks for all your help everybody on my questions this week.

I'm going to shoot 720P 24 but I'd like to shoot 24N because it gives me
20 minutes on an 8GB card. I'm going to edit on Final Cut Pro 5.12.

I haven't edited 24P footage before. Is there anything that I should know
before committing to 24N tomorrow?

I know I should have this all figured out and tested by now but I've been
scrambling to do a lot of other stuff due to no art dept., audio dept.,p.a.s., etc..

Thanks!

24N (23.98p) is good. In 720P 24 (59.98p) the camera records 60p (59.98p) but flags only 24 (23.98p) of those frames... much like the varicam (in which case I think now a days FCP knows how what frame rate you shot where as before you would need a frame rate converter plugin). When you shoot 24N (23.98p) it shoots 24fps (23.98p) so it leaves a lot more room on the cards for info.

24PN is fine don't worry about it. I always have shot 24PN and I've never had a problem. I'm on FCP 5.0.2 an it runs great.

24P (60fps) is pretty much only to match the Varricam's frame rate, so that you don't have two seperate frame rates in your Final Cut Sequence. If you've not using a Varricam then don't worry about 24P, shoot 24PN.

Ditto the previous, 24PN and 30PN works great with FCP.
