Hi

I have a shoot coming up this weekend with the Canon. I will be shooting 30fps, well I have no choice!!!

I wanna finish in 25fps for British TV. What is the best way to do this? What workflow do I need to use re FCP?

Thanks Everyone

RealViz Retimer or Re:Vision Twixtor.

Not sure if either is available for FCP.

But isn't there now 25p firmware for the 5D?

No firmware till next year, you could use a 7d!

Compressor works OK on best setting but takes ages, should be included in your FCP package

here's a step by step method that uses FCP's compressor and NeoScene HD from Cineform- the directions are for 30-24p but should be the similar. I've had good results with this method in a test environment.

If you have the time to do some tests, let us know what method you liked the best.

Have a look at Arri's new Relativity software package. It's substantially better than the old Twixtor "blur-between" type of conversions.

Hi Gareth,

Ussually, I converted all footage to 25fps using either MPEG Streamclip or Cinematools. From my experience, apple pro res is the best codec for FCP, so I always converted that way.

Hi fellow filmmakers,

from all the stuff available, this one
http://library.creat...eo-tutorial.php
provided the best results.
In case the motion becomes too fast, there is a value you have to adjust somewhere to rather blend the motion than use the plug-ins motion vector technique.
Slow, but IMO best quality.
