As I have the Canon HG10 here for the day, ( its a gift for my daughter)I decided to play with the 24P mode. What I found interesting is that the files, regardless of the settings I did on the Canon HG10 all appeared to be 1080 x 1440 29.97 fps. I copied and pasted them to my computer hard drive. They all ported to Vegas timeline OK. However in the media properties they all looked like 1080 x 1440 x 29.97. The camera screen indicated 24P but the playback, even in the canon camera looked the same in all modes. I tried HXP 15 Mbits as well I don't believe I missed any menu settings and went through 21 clips of various settings, all with the same results.
I next tried to load one of the files, an intended 24P cine mode file to my Macbookpro in Final Cut. It said it was an unknown file type. I renamed it to all the major Quicktime flavors, MP4 MPG and m2t ets and the error message was the same. Final cut would not read any of the AVCHD files. Well, except those from my Vegas Main Concept rendered to MP4 at 1920 x 1080. Anyway, Final Cut Studio 2 did not like any of the files from the Canon or my Sony SR12. Then, when I tried to play the Main concepts file loaded on my timeline with project set to match the first clip, the Mac crashed! Par for the course I suppose. I do not have much luck with Macs and Final Cut.
