    I filmed a wedding using two different cameras at two different frame rates. My nikon 7100 shot at 1080p 30fps. My Sanyo Xacti fh1a shot 1080i(?) 60fields per second.

    How do I match these frame rates properly? And is fields per second interlaced footage?


    My nikon footage has a field dominance of "upper(odd)" according to Final Cut Express' item properties. The Sanyo footage reads "none" in field dominance... What does this mean in terms of matching the two?

    I would convert the 60i footage into 30p first, then create a project that runs 30fps and you can edit them easily. I'm pretty sure field dominance should be set to none and you simply deinterlace the 60i footage and then you're good to go.
