50p Slow Motion without Cinema Tools...?

I'm shooting a project in 50p with a view to edit on a 25p timeline in FCP 5.1.4. My workflow is based on Tim Dashwood's explanation here....

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...&highlight=50p

So i'm capturing an .m2t with HDVxDV and creating the quicktime in MPEG StreamClip.

But then after that i'm stumped as i don't have Cinema Tools....

Can anybody suggest a better workflow for this? Or any completely different processes?

Getting really good slow motion with 50p is my ultimate goal for a shoot next week, and i'm pulling my hair out trying to test it all out and get it working.

Can anybody help??? pleaaase!

If you have FCP 5.1, then you have Cinema Tools. You probably just unchecked it when you did your initial installation.

You can "custom" install it from the FCStudio DVD, and just uncheck FCP, etc.

There is another solution, but it will take away the real-time editing capability of using Cinematools.

You can select each 50P clip in your bin (one at a time) and click CMD+J to adjust the speed to 50%. Turn off frame blending.

You now have 25P clips, but they will require rendering.

Thanks a lot Tim, I've been experimenting a lot this week and got a lot more confident with it all now but that was the only cloudy area.

I'll dig out my install CD and see where my long lost cinema tools has gone then.

Cheers,
