I use a canon HF10, which can shoot in either 24p, 30p, or 60i. I'm curious on what sequence settings to use in final cut express 4, either AIC 720p30 or AIC 1080i60. its confusing because the camcorder writes the video a 60i despite the shooting frame rate. take this situation for example: say i recorded some footage using the 30p mode, the camera writes the data to the storage medium as 60i footage. when i'm back at my computer, does final cut (or iMovie, which ever you use) automatically convert the 60i footage back to the original 30p footage? or does it still stay as 60i footage? Do any of you HF10/100 or even HV30 users do when shooting in either 30p and 60i. also... since some of you canon users are here anyways, what exactly does Cinemode do? I've experimented a bit with all the settings and i seem to get the best video using "P" or program mode. Cinemode seems to make my footage look grainy and awful, without even adding a cinematic feel.
