The master tapes were 23.976 -> dubbed and ingested into Final Cut at 29.97 ND. The sound I have is the Pro Tools sessions from the dub stage Time Code rate is 29.97 ND - under session setup it's being pulled down .1% via the Sync I/O - so my actual session is running at 47.952. And my question was... was that pulldown so it will be in sync with the videotape transfer, or the film (which is the feature's final delivery). Now, from re-reading some books, I've figured out this pulldown must be for the video transfer. So, I've disabled the session pulldown, used Audiosuite to perform the pulldown, and created omf's of each reel for our video editor. Now when he's done editing, hopefully all will be well for the mix with no pulldowns necessary. Our final delivery is 29.97 ND.
And I'm still have trouble believing I can't get 59.94 on the Big Counter... but that's what the manual says. I only have a SYNC I/O, is this where the SYNC HD comes into play? I suppose if I need to spot in reference to my video's burn in I can set the session to 29.97, grid values to 1/2 frame, and then I'll sort of be at 59.94. Or am I over thinking this?
