    Hi out there.

    I have a problem as I have to film with two different cameras tomorrow. And afterwards I edit the images in one single timeline. I have no other option than these two cameras:

    One is the Canon 7D
    The other one the Panasonic HDC-SD909

    Canon 7D only records 1080/25p

    The Panasonic HDC-SD909 records always interlaced, BUT: one can additionally record 1080 at 50fps. There is NO option of recording 1080/25p.

    I will now film with Canon at 1080/25p and Panasonic with 1080/50p.

    My possible editing suites are Final Cut 7, Final Cut X and Adobe Premiere (at the university).

    My Plan:
    – to film both cameras progressive (25p and 50p) and to export the Canon7D material to Prores 1080/50p. Then I can simply open a 1080/50p timeline in Final Cut.

    My questions:
    – It makes sense, as I only have to double the images … I will not loose anything, right? Is it the best workflow?

    – Or better export to Prores at 1080/25p?

    – Or should I record interlaced? But the 7D does not record interlaced … I guess that makes no sense at all, even if I could re-compress it to 1080i, as I will only loose quality, right?

    Thanks for helping me out! Thats kind of you! Best, Florian.

    Okay, problems solved. I have recorded in 1080p50 with th Panasonic and with 1080p25 with the Canon7D.
    Then I converted it to a ProRes Format with 1080p25 and both cameras look very nice on a Final Cut timeline. The look is quite similar, even the colours match more or less.
