I recorded video at 24p as I wanted that "cinema look" so to speak. When I run mediainfo (I'm on a Mac) on the MTS files, it shows as 29.97fps. Same thing when I import into Final Cut Pro X (it automatically detects at 29.97fps).
Does anyone know why this is occurring? On another thread in this forum, it sounded like someone was saying 24p == 29.97fps. Is that correct? I figured it would be at 24fps, since that is what I believe to be recording at.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
Additionally, if I try to convert my video to 24fps (via project properties in Final Cut Pro X), on some sections of video it does some weird conversion where I'll see frames duplicated, like AABBCCDD... for a second or two before it reverts back to a single unique frame. Not sure if this is related, or maybe just some Final Cut Weirdness.
