720p24@60 Analog correct pulldown?


I have a bunch of 720p24 footage from my HD100 that I am trying to capture with FCP 5.1.2. FCP's 720p24 HDV would be great if it didn't refuse to record several seconds at every start and stop and any glitch in the tape. It is loosing way too much footage.

So I have a Decklink HD and Multibridge and I am trying to capture with that.

I can get 720p24@60 footage captured just fine as DVCProHD, but how do I get the correct pull-down on the footage so it is 720p24@24? I have read that Tim Dashwood just drops it on a 720p24 timeline and everything works. maybe I am misunderstanding, but I have to render the timeline and the pulldown doesn't look correct.

I can also capture 1080i out from the HD100 and then do a reverse telecine on that in FCP and that sort of works. The pull-down is correct anyway and I prefer this method, because my HD monitor supports 1080p24, but not 720p24. The problem with this is most of the time the footage gets recorded at half resolution (i.e 960x540 instead of 1920x1080). Other times the footage gets recorded at the correct resolution, but when I do the pull-down the frame size gets changed to half resolution. I also see flickering in the footage I don't see any other way.

So how is everyone else doing this? What works?
