I'm shooting a pilot for SAG web series on a JVC HD200UB, recording in 720p. I love the camera, but I'm a bit torn as to which frame rate to use. I love the cinematic look of 24p, especially with a 1/32nd shutter, but will that look come through once it's uploaded? Is shooting in 30p going to give me a more accurate translation? Also, I want an HD iTunes option and high quality DVD option, so it can't just be "good enough for YouTube." It's being edited on FCP and recorded to SxS with HDV backup. Any input or ideas are greatly appreciated.

Cheers-
A

24P footage will play fine on a computer. Whatever it's played in will read and display the appropriate frame rate. Also LCD monitors, as far as I know, are all progressive based anyway.

Thanks. That's the answer I was hoping for.

They're all progressive, but they're also usually all 60Hz. There's absolutely nothing you can do about this, though, and even if you shoot at 15 or 30 there's still no guarantee that you'll get frame for frame reproduction.

Just assume the computer will sort it out. If you want to do it at 24, do it at 24. You'll end up with (roughly) 6:4 pulldown on a 60Hz display.
