Pulldown Errors

Symptom #1: FCP Can’t Find Pulldown Information

“I keep capturing my 24P clips, but FCP says it can’t find any pulldown information to remove the extra fields.”

Background

24P systems use a pulldown pattern to insert and remove extra fields to match NTSC frame rates. Therefore, it is imperative that no frame numbers are skipped in a video clip. For all original 24P video frames to match up with a contiguous timecode number, all timecode numbers must be present, before and after pulldown removal. You can’t use a timecode system that skips numbers.
