XL2-25p-16/9 : how capturing properly?
Hi there,

Bought my XL2 (pal-version) in Belgium, I'm very happy with it. But I think I'm making some mistakes while capturing.
I cannot drag clips from my viewer to my timeline without having to render. Although capture settings are correct... I think... I'm using FCP4...

sequence preset : DV PAL 48 kHz - 24

(Use this preset when editing with DV 24 fps material conformed from 25 PAL source)

capture preset : DV PAL 48 kHz

(it's or this preset, or the DV PAL 48 kHz - anamorphic preset, cannot choose other)

So, why do I have to render? Does the pulldown pattern plays a role in here? Now it's set to 2:3:2:3, maybe I have to change this? Or is it because I filmed with the filmgrain-function on? Can this be the reason? Would seem strange to me, no...?

Thank you very much!!

Keep in mind that the PAL camera does not have 24p. So you
cannot select that. You also cannot do 2:3:3:2 or 2:3(:2:3) pulldown
since the camera does not do 24p!!!

So you definitely want a PAL 25 frames per second preset! I do
not know (since I do not use Mac/FCP) if you can select a
PROGRESSIVE (25p) preset, but otherwise I'm sure you can set
it to progressive after you've choosen a template or something.

I work with the XL2 and FCP HD, and I think I know the answer to that.

so first I need to know, is there a preset DV PAL 48 kHz - 24@25?
YOU HAVE TO USE THIS ONE! and not DV PAL 48 kHz - 24 for your sequence presets.

Hi Tim,

Don't think so no...

I'm still a bit confused by all this....

Hi everyone.
This is my first post and I am new to all that.
I would also like to know the answer to the same question.
How to capture 25P in FCP?
