Celulloyd, If your end pro



If your end product will be a film to be projected by a standard film projector in the United States (or anywhere else where 24 fps is the standard film projection speed), then 24P is the correct choice. However, there seems to be a growing trend to skip film and stay with digital video, even for projection. In that case, I would recommend the slightly smoother action of 30 fps. And progressive is preferable if doing things like compositing, slow motion, or freeze frames, so shoot 30P. I suspect 30fps might be less complicated to work with than 24fps, when it comes to editing. (Don’t have to deal with having 24 usable frames in a 30 frame space.)

That’s my 3 cents worth,
