I apologise if this has been posted before or is in the wrong section - my search function is not working properly at the moment...


I have recently completed a short narrative project (I am the director) and now have a procedural question regarding the combination of the 35mm film and HD footage. The problem arose when our DP - who was unfamiliar with the HVX - shot the HD footage with the 108024P setting which is essentially 60i and not actually 24p (aspect ratio = 1920 x 1080).

My question is what would be the best way of going about combining the two medias - I have access to Avid, Final Cut, Shake, etc...I got the 35mm transfer done "Academey - Full - and it is on DigiBeta tapes". Any suggestions - what we have tried so far has caused many problems from sound un-synching to aspect ratio issues...

Anyone have any experience in this?

Thanks so much for your time,

Jeff

Just get rid of the 3:2 pulldown in the HVX footage to edit in 24P/1080.

When we do this in Shake it actually shortens the footage just a little and then we can't keep audio synced - as well there is the aspect ratio problem to combine the footage together in the end.

Thank you very much for your prompt reply though.
