First of all I would like to thank to all of you and to apology for my pure English.
Our short movie is accepted to a festival in US and we have to deliver it as HDCam 1080/59.94i.
The movie has been shot with Sony Z1 cineframe 25.
What is the best way to get HDCam 1080/59.94i from such footage?
The movie was edited with Premiere Pro but we also have Avid and FCP (in a case that we have to make conversions)


Thank You !!!

Hi,

First, check with your festival if it MUST be 59.94i - this is a bit strange for a film festival IMHO, but I wouldn't know much about these sorts of things.

I would imagine the easiest thing to do is to slow your footage to 23.98fps, then the conversion process to 59.94i is not too bad.

I think there would be a few programs that could do this, perhaps Compressor (on Apple) or ProCoder on PC?

You will need an HDCAM deck with HD-SDI card in the computer to make the transfer.

A post house should be able to do this conversion for you, but it will be expensive! A few hundred dollars probably

Thank you James.Software based conversion didn't gave us best results so we took it to a post house.
