The A1 wraps 24F in a 30i format, so your preset needs to be 30i and you need to use pull-down.
Wow. I wasn't expecting anything like this. Thanks for getting back to me. So, and please correct me if I'm wrong, you are saying that my project that I shot in 24P was recorded as 30i by the Canon XH-A1 and that I need to set up my project as 30i on Premiere? And use pulldown? Aren't there several formats of pulldown?
The project is an independent feature which may be transferred to 35mm film for theatrical release. I shot it in 24P to make that an easy process. Won't it being in 30i format mess that up?
What is the purpose of the Canon having a 24P setting if it only records in 30i?

The A1 has a 24F format, not 24P. And the A1 can only use a single tape speed, hence the wrapping in a 30i format. For instance with DVCProHD there is a 1080i 24P preset. I think there was a specific download from Adobe with the correct presets for 24F. Check that.
Thanks. I will see what Adobe can offer.
Does that mean I have to start my edit over again from the start? Is there a way to transfer the 25P timeline I have created into a 30i timeline?
I never tried it, but maybe if you nest your 25P sequence in a new 30i/24F sequence, it may turn out right. Just try it.
