US Broadcast advice needed

Hi Guys, I am an editor from Australia and will be working on a TVC for US broadcast. We all work in 25FPS here and sometimes 24FPS so I am confused what we need to shoot this at. 23.96, 24 or 29.97 T

My advice is "don't." But if you must, then use the h.264 codec, reduce the frames per second and use the most bandwith you can. I prefer just making native h.264 videos (mp4) rather than using it ins

There is not. You set up sequences before putting anything into them at all and that's what you are stuck with. As someone who is used that being the norm, that auto conform feature really bugged me.

FCPX is too complicated for novice users and not powerful enough for professional users. This is a classic mistake in product positioning. Only 1600+ units sold. They should have sold over 20K by now.
