I'm really new to filmmaking - I've been reading up for several months, and I just finished shooting my first film! It's a silent short shot on my friend's Bolex, on Tri-X Reversal.
For reasons I now slightly regret, I shot at 18 fps. Mostly, I had fallen in love with the look of old silents projected from celluloid, and didn't mind the 25% savings on stock and processing.
I had the film scanned so that I could edit together a digital video, but I'm having a lot of trouble working with the fact that it's 18 fps. The scan from the lab came one video frame to each film frame, as expected, but I want to do a pulldown to a standard video speed like 24 fps.
I've been banging my head against Google trying to figure out how to do the conversion, and so far have had no luck at all. If I'm understanding this correctly, it seems like it should be a pretty easy pulldown, just displaying every third frame twice to produce 24 frames from 18.
I would really appreciate it if someone could recommend a technique for doing this conversion. I'm using AVID, which doesn't seem to have the functionality built-in (or at least I couldn't find it). The file I'm working with is a ProRes 4444.
Thanks in advance for your help!
