    It’s all about how FCP reads the flagged frames to drop in the pulldown process. How does iMovie do it and if this guys wasn’t doing 23.98 it’s moot. I know Focus is all over a solution. I’ve had it bite me badly!

    It looks like he was using the FS-4 and not the FS-100, so he was not doing HD or 24 fps footage. What is interesting to me is that even the DV footage on the FS-4 seems to have the same problems as the FS-100 HD 24fps clips in FCP HD. Not a good sign….

    I just got an FS-100 and when I first dropped 720p60 footage onto a sequence I noticed the black gaps.

    However, I’d inadvertently dropped it onto a standard DV-NTSC sequence.

    When I created a 720p60 sequence and dropped the same imported clips onto it, the gaps disappeared and played back seamlessly.

    What do you mean “Dropped” into a sequence. Do you have some method of linking these seperated files together? I have to make individual edits and know of no short cut way to do this, do you?

    I grabbed the clips and placed them into the appropriate sequence.

    It was a test where I ran the camera for several minutes. The Firestore created three seperate clips just over 2 minutes long. The contents of the Firestore were copied over to a RAID and imported into Final Cut Pro.

    I then selected the three clips and dropped them into the sequence timeline. They were in the proper order, butted tightly together, with no gaps.
