60i AND 30p?

Can you use both 60i and 30p in the same project?
I think they're both converted to 60i in the digital editing program. Any problems encountered?

Basically you can, but it might "look" weird. Basically 30p and 60i
are the same thing. The difference is that while "getting/capturing"
the images one half was taken slightly later then the other in 60i
mode. In 30p everything is taken at the same time.

After this picture getting stage the pipe line is the same. Basically
your NLE doesn't know or see the difference (this does not mean
you should or can't handle it differently).

Try it to see how it looks (especially on the screen you are going
to be watching it on).
