    720p@23.976 Project & 30i Footage

    We have a project  720p@23.976  with most of the footage shot at that format. The deliverable will be QTs 720p@23.976 but the project requires to mix SD 30i (digibeta) footage into it. Is there a way inside the 720p project to capture the SD footage or have the  Avid to convert the SD footage if captured on a separate SD project?

    The SD can be captured in a NTSC 23.976 project. This will remove the 3:2 on the fly so its a true 23.976 clip which might make the footage have a stutter.

    The other option is to use DVFilm Maker to convert the 29.97 to 23.976. This is a very high quality frame rate conversion.

    Unless the DigiBeta footage was originally 24p with pulldown added, then capturing it into a 23.976 project WILL cause it to stutter. I think the DVFilm option is the one that's going to work best for you. You'd have to capture the footage into a 30i project, then export QT reference files of each clip and render new 23.976 versions, which you could then re-import into your 23.976 Avid project. It's not nice, but it does work.

    I agree, unless its recorded with pull-down, it will cause a stutter. This is often acceptable for an offline and only the clips that are used in the edit can have the frame rate changed.
