Pull Down madness for Avid or FCP

Do you shoot in 24P, 23.976P, 30i, 60i, 30p? It can be confusing what format to choose. Then if you choose 24P, you are faced with the question. Do you shoot with the standard pull-down method, or the advanced pull-down method?

Advanced pull-down is 2:3:3:2
Standard pull-down is 2:3:2:3

If you are going back to film, shoot with the Advanced Pull-down Method, and then edit directly in 24P when using Avid or Final Cut Pro.

If you are going back to video, then you should really edit at 29.97 and go back to video at 29.97. This method will give you the 'film look' with 29.97 television. If this is the result you want then shoot with the Standard Pull-down method.

For more information about video or film-making using 24P formats, you can visit the Adamwilt.com webpage. He has some fanastic tutorials that go into great details about the various video formats.
