That 24p camera setting

Well, just wanted to demonstrate that the 24p mode on your camera does, in fact, make your footage look soo much better. Total proof:

The 24p portion is too short! You should have done the same shot with and without 24p.

When you switched to 24p, it looked a little dark. Did you make sure that the shutter speed didn't also change? Shutter speed can make a significant difference with the film look.

Thats what I tell my mom when she comes over to look at my messy dorm. "Are you sure your not looking at it in 60i mode?"

She never understands.

Thanks :) I use Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 to edit, and Sorenson Squeeze with the 1mbps quicktime .mov preset. Sorenson can produce some very nice results.

Capturing 60i Footage with Canon XL2 SD Camera

Do you have any problems capturing 60i footage with PP2.0? I shot some footage in Maryland last week and in Adobe PP I don't see a preset for 60i footage, I see presets for 24p and 30p, but none for 60i. What is the work around for this?
