HPX170P & Firestore - 24p

Hey all,

I'm using a Panasonic HPX-170p and a Firestore unit to capture video. I'll shooting my footage at 24p....however, whenever I try to record to the firestore unit, the quicktime files that it outputs show up as 720/60p. Anyone know why this is?

sounds like your firestore doesn't support 24PN.

Re: HPX170P & Firestore - 24p

The HPX170 doesn't stream 24pN over firewire. You have to be in 24P mode, and that's means it's transmitted (and recorded) in a 60p stream with a 2:3 pulldown (repeated frames).

If you're using the FS-100, you set the DV Format to either "P2 PN" or "Quicktime PN" mode and it will strip out the extra frames from the stream as it records.
