24P Advanced & Xpress Pro w/Mojo

Hi everyone,

We've recently bought an XL2 at work and I'm having some trouble figuring out 24P Advanced footage...I've tried several tests and I just seem to be getting footage with excessive noise. I know that 24P footage is supposed to have that film look, but I feel like I'm doing something wrong, because I've taken a look at test footage on this site, which seems to be a lot cleaner, and I feel like I don't have my export settings in Avid set right, or my settings on the XL2 set correctly for that matter. There's just a lot of flickering in larger areas (like a wall) or in areas of detail (like a carpet) and what seems to me to be way more noise than you'd see in normal 24P footage.


I'm shooting in 24P Advanced (2:3:3:2), then importing into a 23.976 project in Avid Xpress pro w/Mojo. I'm exporting as a quicktime, and then importing into After Effects 6.5.

I've searched this forum extensively and found some great advice and articles. If anyone has any more specific advice, or oculd point me to a thread regarding this topic, I would greatly appreciate your comments.

Normally we don't allow cross-posting here. I've answered this question on our XL2 board at http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...090#post280090, but if anybody has any suggestions on this regarding the Xpress Pro / Mojo settings, please respond here.
