30p-24p conversion problem


Not sure if this is the right place to ask question;

A client has asked me to fix a video;

I was given a 1h 36m video that has gone through cinema tools to go from 30p to 24p, then it was put into compressor to speed up the audio. This method was taken from the Philip Bloom tutorial,

Philip Bloom Blog Archive How to convert Canon 5dmk2 footage from 30p to 24p...

The finished result is a (56g 24p Apple Interm Codec) video that is too slow. The video needs to be sped up.

The aduio/ video are in sync its just too slow. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to how to speed up the whole file? The finished video needs to go onto DVD.

None of the original 30p footage is available all I have to work with is the 24p 56g file,

would compressor work if I change the timing from 01.36.13 to 01.05.13?? A bit of trial and error? I presume there must be a much easier way of doing this,

Any suggestions/ help with this would be greatly appreciated;

In Vegas, you would change the play back rate to 125%. Not sure with FCP

The information you need is in the link you posted. You only did the first half of the process. You need to use compressor to speed the video up, after using Cinema Tools to slow it down. The audio should have been exported separately from the original clip, since the speed of that should not change at all.
