    Matching Frame Rate for a BD Burn

    Tank2256789qwwe

      Hello,

       

      I am currently attempting to burn a 2.5 hour game project to BD.  Source footage came from a pansonic ag-hmc 40 recorded at 1280 x 720 progressive.

       

      The source file settings and project settings match.  1280 x 720 progressive (29.97 fps).

       

      I am planning on burning this project to BD, so I have attempted to export to H.264 and/or mpeg2 blue ray.

       

      I would prefer the H.264 but not sure if that is my best option.....However I have encountered a problem.  There is no option for 29.97 in either of the Blue Ray Formats mentioned above. .

       

      When i go down to set the frame rate on my ouput settings to match my source and sequence settings of (29.97)...the 29.97 is not an option.

      The only choices are:

       

      23.976

      24

      59.94

      Automatic (Based on Source)

       

      I thought Automatic based on source would work but when I select that choice it puts 24 fps as the output ?

       

      Can someone tell me:

       

      1. how I am messed up and can fix the problem.

      2. The best solution to go from here.

      3. And should I not use 720p if  my destination is BD

       

      Thanks in advance for your help.
