Reshoot. Whether or not the footage will work in a timeline isn't the issue. There will be a very different look to each segment. That's not good.
Depending upon your content, you could make it work. The fact that the opening scene has a different look might help you establish a different mood, if that is at all beneficial to you. At this point, unless you can re-shoot, you might try to find what it is about the opening scene that might benefit from the different frame rate (the "look" of 24p) and try to work with it.
Anyway, hope that helps. Good luck!!
My position is favoring Christian's reply.
The 24fps scene is of 'an old woman telling us of when she was younger...'
This short opening scene will lead us into the main story.
So, in clear response, "yes, I will keep the different look because I personally feel I can use it to create a feeling that clearly distinguishes between the 'past' and 'present'"
Even so. . .
No one has answered my question yet :-P
Do you just throw a 24fps clip into a 30fps project and (different look aside) all goes well?
It didn't seem like that when I did it yesterday. It became jumpy, like the program was pissed off about the whole situation . . .
Anyone know how to solve this poser?
>Do you just throw a 24fps clip into a 30fps project and (different look aside) all goes well?
Pretty much, yes. All 24P cameras actually record a 30i signal to tape, as that is the only signal DV can record. The pulldown is added in camera.
Quite the learning curve. But, lot's of fun.
Thank you Jim.
Back to the project for me then,
Open it in an appropriate Project (24fps) and then export it out and back to the other project.
