editing film on dv

has anyone here had experience originating in film, then editing in dv?
I am curious what happens during the film to video transfer. 24fps to 30i.

not that this helps much cause i've never actually done this...tho it seems intriguing....


Pro8 upgrades super8 cameras and i think they do 16 now as well...they'll telecine you're film to dv. if you feel like going out on a limb and getting in touch with them i'm sure they have some info on this process.

I shoot film (16/35mm) to DV all the time. I'm in a PAL country so we shoot film in 25fps for the 25i transfer. I hear quite a lot of commercials in NTSC countrys are shot i 30fps for smooth transfer. However; most transfers can be done from 24fps straight to 25/30fps.

You can shoot super8 in 24fps. Some modified cameras can even do 25 and 30. I shot a feature film in 24fps super8 back in '94... The transfer was done in a Rank URSA.
