Re: Telecine to DVCPRO
This won't help you, but...
We've been using DVCPRO for TK transfer quite a lot. We've been verh
happy with the way it performs. DVCPRO is the pick of the the DV
formats, but we haven't looked at Digital S as yet.....
I wasn't aware that DVCPRO compressed intrafield. I know that it
compresses intraframe (unlike Betacam SX with MPEG). We haven't
noticed any compression artefacts at all. Of course, we don't have
all the 30FPS 3/2 pulldown issues you face.

> I am a filmmaker with a special project. I want to telecine 16mm
(shot at 24 fps) to the new digital video format for consumers and
professional videographers. I will probably use DVCPRO but the other
options are DVC, DVCAM, Digital-S, etc.
I understand that the DVC codec compression algorithm can detect
movement between fields and if necessary compress each field
Compressing fields separately produces a poorer quality image than
compressing a full frame.
Unfortunately SMPTE 3/2 pull down will create artificial frames
look like motion. These artificial frame will not compress well.
QUESTION: Is there some way to ask the telecine operator to turn
3/2 pull down and simply project the film at 23.976 frames per second,
doubling some of the frames to get 29.97 frames per second?
Is anyone currently doing this? (That is telecine directly to
format without storing the image on analog tape (or digital tape with
