    Information in FCPX
    Hi there, I am kind of confused with some of the FCPX settings. Today I set up a new project in FCPX (10.1.3). I used the 1080p HD settings with 25 fps - cause I am located in Europe. The camera I used for importing the material was a Canon 7D. This camera was also set to HD (1920 x 1080) with a frame rate of 25 fps. It is not specified in the camera, but as far as I know and I have been told by the Canon support, all the Canon DSLRs are shooting progressive not interlaced. After importing, I checked the information in the information-window on the right side of the FCP-surface. What I saw did not really make sense. So somehow I just felt to make a doublecheck and therefore I set up my whole OS into the English language, so that also FCP appears in English, which normally appears in German on my system. But after the doublecheck I was even more surprised. As you can see in the attached screenshot in any case I used the exact same project and film-file for comparison. In English the information for the project underneath the Info-tab said 1080p HD and in the second line it says 1920 x 1080 | 25 p. That is perfect and it is exactly what I set up. The same information for the project I can see underneath the Share-tab. That is fine too, as well as the information for the film-file which I can see in the Info-tab. The confusion starts with the information for the film-file from the Share-tab. It reads NTSC 1080p. What is that? Where does this NTSC came from? I never ever set anything to NTSC on my computer or in the preferences of FCPX. Besides 25p and NTSC doesn´t fit anyway. But what even confuses me more is the fact, that all the information in German (expect of the ones from the Info-tab of the project) shows in the second line 1920 x 1080 | 25i. Why interlaced? And why in German and not in English even though I used exactly the same project and the same source-material? Is this simply a bug? Can one trust the information at all? Thanks advance. All the best, Frank [url=http://www.macprovideo.com/forum/upload/upload/server/php/savedfiles/files/mpv_44750_229603_FCP_issue.jpg] [img]http://www.macprovideo.com/forum/upload/upload/server/php/savedfiles/thumbnails/mpv_44750_229603_FCP_issue.jpg[/img] [/url]
