24fps

Hey, I just filmed some biking stuff at 24fps with a 2:3 pulldown. (not 2:3:3:2).

I will post it shortly, but I have a question. When transfered to DVD, the horizontal interlace disappear, but on the computer they are still there. Is there any way to maintain my full resolution and get rid of the lines? Or do I have to deinterlace and lose half my res?

When you say "on my computer it is still there". How are you viewing this footage?

In both Adobe Premiere, Winamp, Windows Media Player, and Quicktime Veiwer. They all show interlacing lines...

Premiere will show interlacing if your project is set to interlaced. Make sure
you load the footage into 24P project.

Keep in mind that 24p footage goes through a pulldown process to create
60i on tape. So I don't find it strange that you see interlacing if you watch
a captured piece. You first need to turn it back into 24p (see the premiere
note above) and then output to a true progressive like format (that does
not (re-)introduce the 2:3:3:2 pulldown like the DV format does!) at 23.976
fps or export to MPEG-2 24p (for DVD).

I knwo this has been done to death, but I keep getting conlficting answers!

Thanks
Matt

More Q's

Okay i have a similar question, i recently filmed a short promo for a church event on my XL2 for my church and i filmed in 24p in 16:9 aspect ratio. I knew i was going to export the finished product to tape because it was such a small project so i opened a 4:3 project in Premiere Pro 1. I captured using a different program in 4:3 so it was stretched, no suprise.My understanding is that when the XL2 recorss in 16:9, it records at a different resolution, 90x480.... right? Well a standard DV project is in 720x480 so when i brought it into the 4:3 project, it read my footage as widescreen and simply blew the image up to fit the 720x480 screen, cropping the side edges. I just used the motion controls to reduce the size to 75% and then it looks like widescreen in the 4:3 screen. I thought all was good until i rendereed it and then all the pixelation was visible. I concluded that because it was compressing a 960x480 widescreen ratio to fit in a 720x480 window it made it look so edgy. If any of you guys know premiere can you help me with this, is there a for sure way to make my project resolution bigger? i think i know how but i dont want to mess around with it if you can tell me how the right way.
This all being said i think i should film in 24p with 2:3:3:2 pulldown, capture in a 29.97 project, deinterlace all the footage, export in 24p. Is there anyway i can make the project resolution bigger than it already is to match my cameras resolution, if not i jcan just film in 4:3 mode and crop the top.
Another thing, i opened a project with all the setting i told you about above but for frame rate options they only have 29.97 and 25p, not 24p (the one i need). so i selected frame mode and the timeline just has frame numbers, not seconds of minutes, just frames. I filmed in 24P with 2:3:3:2 pulldown, hearing that this was the correct way to film when i wanted to edit it right. Can you tell me if i should just put thyis in a 29.97 timeline and then deinterlace it or something, thats just one thing i heard. Thx for your help, the sooner the better.

Hi Derek. The XL2 CCD captures video at 960x480 in 16:9 mode, but this is downsampled to 720x480 as it is compressed to DV and recorded to tape. You can never access the 960x480 signal so try to ignore this when you set up your project. The setting should be NTSC DV 4:3 or NTSC DV 16:9, both oif which are 720x480.

I am not familiar with Premiere Pro, but I would expect there to be a setting (something like "maintain aspect ratio") that automatically letterboxes a 16:9 clip in a 4:3 project. Maybe you can repost your question on a Premiere forum? This is not an XL2 issue so I think you could get more responses there.

still doesn't cover 2:3 or 2:3:3:2 for a 24p timeline. I read the other 24p post, but got conflicting answers. Which is bets for veiwing on a comp and DVD... not outputting to film.

If you are editing the footage go with 2:3:3:2. For film out 2:3 might be
interesting, but that should be discussed with the company doing the film out.

Mathew,

I think you have it backwards...

2:3:3:2--advanced is for use in a 24p (23.97fps) timeline.

2:3 is for use in a 29.97 fps timeline.

(either method will show interlace lines in a 29.97 timeline, but the advanced mode will give you a true 24p experience in a 24 fps timeline.)

For a detailed description of how it all works...see adamwilts page (discussion of 24p in the dvx and xl2)

Hope this helps.
