    Hi, I'm trying to use Cinema Tools to remove the pulldown from some video I shot using a Sony HVR-Z1U. I'm capturing the video as 1080i60 HDV.

    I load a clip into cinema tools, select reverse telecine using the Frame 1 - Frame 2 and AA settings, which I've been told are correct.

    When the clip is done processing it's still interlaced and looks wrong.

    I've tried every parameter combination for reverse telecine, no go. What am I doing wrong?

    The Z1U doesn't have a 24p mode which is why the footage looks screwed up coming out of CT. The Sony Cineframe24 mode is designed to 'mimic' the look of shooting at 24fps, but it's not 24fps and it kinda mauls the footage so people avoid using it.

    Thanks. In hindsight it looks like I would have been better off shooting 1080i50 PAL, deinterlacing it, and then conforming it to 24p in CT. I guess that's why they call them learning experiences.

    If you are trying to get a 'film look' then shooting in the CineFrame 25 mode would probably be your best bet.
