I'm getting back into the game and there are a few things to catch up on (formats); When capturing/editing in FCP 6, is it necessary to create "custom presets" for footage shot in 24p, 30p, 60i (DV NTSC), etc.
P. S. This forum is awesome!

Hi
On the contrary, it is customary to use an Easy Setup pre-set appropriate to the specific format you are working with.
The exception may be 30p, where you may have to create a 'None' frame dominance preset to work within a basic interlaced setting.

The exact specifics of your camera and workflow are essential for a definitive answer.

Easy Setup

Didn't realize it was that strait forward. Thanks
