I would like to upgrade to the new all in one "Vision Lab". I currently own Effects Lab DV.
does the program handle 24p frame rate?
Iam a filmmaker and always shoot in 24p

Yes.

I quote:

The programs should support real 24 progressive frames just fine. 24p with pull down (making it really 30fps so it can play on a TV with some frames interlaced, others not) like most MiniDV cameras do can be a bit strange to work with (best to work spilt field, although some frames will seem doubled).

Try the demo.

I'm not sure if this is what you asked but i have a question! Can VisionLab support DV or just HD? Does it have to be good quality like HDV? or not?

VisionLab supports both DV and HD footage. (Same goes for ELab Pro and CLab Pro.)

Since Vlab basically is Elab and Clab in one program (plus some nifty extra features razz) all the features of those programs are included.

This may be slightly off topic, but reading all of this lead me to thinking this question:

If I plan on using a FCP Plugin to change my DV from 30fps to 24fps to help give it the "film" look, what should the workflow be:

1. 30fps Footage -> Edit -> Add Effects -> Convert to 24fps

or

2. 30fps Footage -> Convert to 24fps -> Edit -> Add Effects

Or does it even matter?

Just curious.

One factor that might influence your decision is whether you want to keep an NTSC DVD version.

In that case, I would imagine that converting to 24p should be your last step, so that you can still keep a version in 30fps interlaced.

Guess that answers my question! biggrin

I just wanted to be sure that if I converted to the 24fps after applying everything, there wouldn't be a problem.

Cool.

Why would you even want to convert your footage to 24p if you're not going to to a blow up on film? neutral

depth to feild also gives your footage film look. You dont need it forjust blowing up althogh it is awsome for that. But even in dvd production when u edit in 24p you hasve your options open and it will look awsome. I have shot with lots of cams. If the cam does not have 24p I wouldint buy it. Right nowi want to buy the cam i rented the hvx 200 or the other dvx100b those are mad cheap for what you are getting out of it. Profesional camera for anon profesional price real hd 24p what more can u want(a bigger budjet) smile just my take on it.
