Everything on the XH-A1 is wrapped in 29.97 format because the tape speed does not change (mechanical limitation of the camera) when you shoot 24F, so you need to use a 29.97 sequence and treat your material as such.
OK, So the reason why this happened is because I didn't stop the capture after the 60i footage ended?
I should have started a new capture when the footage started at 24p, and premiere would have read the 23.976?
You Can not Mix frame rates on one tape, if so, it will always assume 29.976?
The tape runs at a constant speed during the shoot and during playback. It does not slow down because you set the camera to 24F, it runs at the same speed all the time. So just capture @ 29.97. Then when you have imported these clips, drag one of them to the New Item icon at the bottom of the Project panel and a new sequence with all the correct settings will be created automatically. Then this issue will disappear.
Ok, That fixed it!
it's kind of confusing a little, You would think that 30 fps or 24 fps, it would need some sort of speed adjustment.
Oh well, I corrected it, thanks again
I've been very frustrated with Canon's HDV (I've been using the XHA1 for three years now, and am looking fondly at the GY-HM700 from JVC...). I had read when I first got the camera that you shouldn't mix frame rates on the same tape, so I've always just started a new tape if I've had to switch framerates, and I've always labeled my tapes as to which frame rate they're in.
Interesting to learn of Harm's experience with everything being 29.97 in reality... I hadn't realized that, though on reflection it does make some sense... I'll be glad to move away from tape and Canon, both, whenever I get enough money for the JVC!
