mixing 24 and 25p

Well after a day of trying to sync up an interview. gh2 24p close up footage with mid-shot shot on HDV at 25p(with the good sound) here are my experiences.

I could not make it work in FCP. Tried conforming both to 25p and 24p in Cinema tools and FCP, i tried dropping them on a 25p timeline and i tried pluraleyes. All these methods caused the sync to waver over a 10 minute clip, badly.

So i downloaded the Trial of Premiere Pro, dropped the 25p clip on a 25p timeline, dropped the 24p on top, synched up the start and it stayed synched all the way through. To my ears and eyes it looked fine.


Is there a better way in FCP?
