Quick questions to ask,
1. Can the HVX be shot on 1080 progressive 24frames per second?
2.I have heard that 1080i and 720p theres no difference to it, i guess shooting 720p would be better cuz u get different fps to choose from..
Thanks for helping..

So it can do different frame rates in progressive-scan capture, especially 24P, the only issue is whether you want them recorded as 720P or 1080i, with a pulldown to convert to 60i (although I don't know if all the shooting frames rates are available when you switch between 720P and 1080i recording modes.) If you shoot 24P, it would basically get a 3:2 pulldown in the recording to be stored as 60i/1080.
(I don't think 24P/1080 is a recording option with the camera but I could be wrong.)
So it sort of depends on how you plan on doing the HD post for the project. Personally, I would assume that it would be a "cleaner" post process to stick to the 720P recording mode if shooting progressive-scan rather than deal with footage upconverted to 1080i interlaced-scan with a pulldown, but if you are shooting for a final 1080i master, it might not make a difference.

1080 recording is always 60i.
