Canon 5d 30p and 24p mixing and Firstlight Settings

Hello,

I have a music video shot on the Canon 5dmk2, using these settings

1. 30p before the 29.97 firmware

24p 23.976 after the new firmware

How can I convert the 30p recorded material into 23.976p? I want all my 30p footage to be 23.976 to match the rest of the project filmed when the new firmware was released for the camera.

I tried using HDLINK in Prospect HD using the frame rate change of 30 - 24p, when I played back the footage the converted 30p to 24p it was slow motion and the audio then does not sync to the music track I have in Adobe Premiere pro cs4.

The new footage is to slow to match up, is there a better way or settings that i need to enable?

2. The 30p and 24p Quicktime files from the card were converted in HDLINK, then coloured in Firstlight.

I am on my own machine and I only have the original files which will need converting into Cineform again, as the work was done at 1280x720 at medium quality when the colouring was done on a seeprate computer.

How can I work with the same colour database which were applied to these clips on the first computer on my computer setup? How does Firslight keep track of the meatdata/colour corrections in Firstlight to clips, is this only avaiable on the system that did the initial corrections?

Thanks,

Leo

1. You need a tool like Twixtor to convert 30 to 24, you can't just change the frame rate.

2. Start by watching this
The complex part is not the separate machines, it seems that you have made proxies. We haven't released of database support for proxies (other than for R3D sources.) So there isn't a simple way to more color profiles from proxy to the online clips. You will need to bring both into FirstLight and copy the parameters across.

Thanks for the reply, I been testing Twixtor. Its great quality just very slow at converting. The files are to big to send as they are in a different country, is there anyway I can get a settings file of each grade from Firstlight which can be exported and then imported and copied to each clip I have on my system?

Thanks,

Leo

You could use the snapshot feature -- and send those.
