EDITING 35MM FOOTAGE ON PREMIERE CS5.5

Mar 11, 2013 5:06 AM

I am workin on a film which has been shot on Arricam LT Super 35 camera. The processing lab has sent Telecine tapes which are in DV 25 PAL format. Its now been captured into premiere as 720*480 25fps footage.

My doubt is,

a. should I conform it to 24fps and then start the edit or keep it at 25fps

b. If I conform it, with the pull down method, I will be losing a frame every second. Will this not affect the timecode and subsequently the EDL which I have to send to the Lab.

How does this process really work as I am fluent in editing films shot on Digital but new to TC edit.

 

Thanks in advance,
Bharath

    You would be best served by editing at the

    native frame rate of your source material.

    b. If I conform it, with the pull down method, I will be losing a frame every second. Will this not affect the timecode and subsequently the EDL which I have to send to the Lab.

    Are you working with a 'best light' transfer with the intent

    of sending a post-edit scene select EDL to the xfer house

    for final color correction?

    If so, that is even more reason for you to edit

    at your source material's native frame rate.

    Also it looks like NTSC pixel size not the 720x576 of PAL

    Did you paste your question into the forums after typing it out in some other program?  It has this code strewn throughout which makes it a little tough to read.

     

    p style="margin: 0 0 1em; font-family: helvetica, arial, ubuntu, san-serif; font-size: 13px; background-color: #f9f9f9;"

    I did paste it from a forum where I didnt get any replies.

     

    Ahhh.

     

    Next time if you could paste it first into a text editor, which eliminates all formatting, that would be helpful.
