Ha Ha!
That's a good joke!
(You'll be telling me it's possible to shoot 1080 progressive with the EX1 next)!

Seriously, thanks for that info George and Richard - I just tried it and the audio works at 50 fps, of course. I can't believe I overlooked that. It's so important to the project I'm shooting at the moment.

You've really made my day!

No Sound is recorded in slo-mo or fast-mo recording.

And it IS possible to record in 1080 progressive. 1920x1080 25p .

Andy.

What's the project you're working on ?
Do you need a hand ?
I'm only about an hours drive from you.

Paul.

Do I need a hand . . ?

. . . Only fairly desperately!
My partner Gill can't operate the cam for me (much) as she's changed her job and gets far less time off than she used to. This means I have to be on both sides of the camera. Not easy - especially on the occasions when it's mounted on scaffolding and I have to climb up and down a ladder to switch on and off between takes!

Funds are a problem though and shooting has to be fitted around our routine work, so it's rather haphazard. All outdoors, too, so it depends heavily on the weather.

Go here to get an idea what its about, although the new one is more serious than this:

its pretty easy with Cinema Tools

Hi,
its also pretty easy to confirm footage which was shot with 720/50p with sound.
You only have to use Cinema Tools to confirm it to play back with 25 frames.
The confirm button is greyed out if you use the original file coming from the EX1, as Cinema Tools cant confirm XDCAM material.
If you convert the clip to a different codec like ProRes or uncompressed before you open it in Cinema Tools, you can simply use the confirm command. You then have perfect 25p slowmotion including sound, as Cinema Tools simply changes the frame rate then. With this workflow there is no need to use the S&Q mode for slow motion.

Hope this helps.
Gerald

Gerald, that's music in my ears!
Just what I was hoping to discover - a way of conforming with CT.

Thank you for posting - and thanks to everyone else who's helped me out on this subject.

And just when the last chord hits, there's a little pause and then... Ting!

Have you explored Compressor with the Frame Controls turned on?

A little demonstration of various modes available to the FCS user who shoots progressive. Note well the various recipes and their effects. Thanks Alex.
