So, I have in the past used the mencoder settings from Eugenia's page to generate true 24P footage from my PF24 HV30 output.
However, those times did not include any A/V sync that I was concerned about. Now along a couple of years and I want to grab some more PF24 footage, but keep the sync, and I'm running into problems.
The mencoder settings have a really, really nasty a/v drift that shows up later in the output. (i'm using huffyuv as an intermediate codec, btw).
I was about to follow the suggestions to use neoscene to just apply the pulldown during capture, and tried the trial version out, but the problem is that to get the pulldown correct, you need to save to the Cineform HD codec (inside an .avi).
Which would be fine, but I am using Blender as my video editor... The builds I have seen do not have a way for me to read an proprietary codec like CFHD.
So - A huge cry out for help!
I've also tried Khaver's script, but I'm on Windows 7 64bit, and all of my output after following each of the instruction to the letter is a big fat video render of:
DirectShowSource: Could not open as video or audio.
... and more output saying the .m2t file "Cannot play back the file. The format is not supported."
I can only assume the problem is with ffdshow not decoding my file correctly, and feeding that bad output to avisynth (?).
So - please - it's 2011 for crying out loud! Is there a bulletproof way to convert this stinking mess of a PF24 file out to a true 24p file that is useful to me (in blender) w/o using a proprietary format?
In a nutshell -all of the free methods have produced either no useable output - or bad a/v sync issues.
The proprietary pay methods produce output that is locked into a format that I cannot use.
