    The documentary I’m going to produce can be potentially broadcasted both in the U.S. than in Europe.
    Which format it will be better to shoot: 1080 60i or 50i?

    I’m thinking about the easy way to do the conversion.

    Thank you Dave for the suggestion.
    I’m shooting with the sony EX1r so I have the capability of 24p.
    I’m sure this doc will be broadcast in television.

    So if I do 24p I have to do 2 “conversions”… and are you suggesting that is easiest to do a 3:2 pulldown for NTSC countries and a to conform to 25p for PAL countries that a conversion from 30 to 25 or viceversa.

    This is interesting!

    I have to go deeper in this field…

    thanks Dave,
    anyways… I want to try shooting in 24p. I have a short video project coming. This will be my 24p test…

    Then I’ll post my experience converting the file in 30p and 25p.

    Exactly. I’ve seen 24p (23.976) called the universal frame rate because of this — it’s easy to add pull-down for 29.97, and it’s easy to conform to 25.
