  • 24p question

    I do predominantly wedding and event work. I just moved up to the new Canon A1s for 2 cams and a third cam of an HV20. I love the cams but for obvious reasons low light in the wedding workflow presents a challenge.

    I have considered putting the cams in 24p for the reception as I hear they do better because of the slower shutter speed. I do plenty of slo mo footage but for the most part the reception is RT since it is mostly dancing and speeches.

    What affect will 24p have on my workflow within Edius when the remainder of my footage is in 1080i. Do they play together nicely on the same timeline? Are there things to do when encoding and rendering for DVD?

    I have never really given much thought to 24p since the little I had played with it had lots of judders and choppiness. I just gave up and stayed with what I know works.

    Would 24p be a viable option for low light footage and will it "play together nicely" on the timeline with my standard footage?

    I don't want to give it a whirl and have it backfire on me and screw up a production.

    They play together nicely but definetly a different look, what you want to do is use those 24P clips on a 60i timeline, it will automatic add 3:2 pull down for you, now since you are working with only 24frames, slomo will not look good, so consider that if you plan to do any slomo later on, also if you rely on autofocus, you might as well forget it because auto in 24f is slow, have to do manual. Also about the judder, the key is to keep you subject on the same spot in the screen when they are moving around and have shalow depth of field, very hard to achieve for event work like what we do.

      Thanks for the information. Before I tried it out I wanted to make sure it would be ok in the editing process. I played with the cam last night and put it in 24f mode with 48fps. It didn't look that much better in low light than 1080i 60fps. I will have to try some more testing here.
