    So I have decided on getting a Canon HV20, mainly for the 24fps mode, but every review being positive pushed me over the edge.

    I will be getting a lens for it and will be shooting some, if not most, material in the 24fps mode.

    So the questions:

    What are the options for editing at 24fps?

    Has anyone here successfully edited at 60i and then later inverse telecined the material into 24P?

    there is absolutely no reason to edit in 60i and then reverse telecine... if you want to edit in 23.98, then reverse telecine the 24p footage before you start editing.

    Oh yes, I don't want to spend like $1500 CND on Final Cut Studio...

    What other options are there?

    I'm pretty certain that Final Cut Express will allow you to edit in 1080p24. It's an easy setup and capture preset.

    AFAIK the HV20 only records 1080i60 to tape. The OP will need to capture it as such and then reverse telecine if he wants to work in 23.98.

    That is the plan, but I am unaware of any editing program that will allow this for an inexpensive cost. As far as I am aware, Final Cut Express will not edit 24pfs material, even after it's been inverse telecined from 60i...:(

    final cut pro would probably be the most versatile solution for you. this site has a bunch of hv20 info among other indie film stuff:
