My documentary will be screening in a film festival and a DCP (digital cinema package) is the preferred exhibition format.


I edited on my DVCPro HD 1080i60 footage on a DVCPro HD 1080i60 timeline.  There are also some DSLR clips and SD archival video clips

that will need to be conformed (via Compressor, or perhaps via hardware) into the codec of the editing timeline.


In reading online info on DCPs, it seems that I should convert my 1080i60 footage into 24fps (or 23.98), and I'm assuming that means I

should go from interlaced to progressive but I'm still reading up on all of this. 


Some facilities take both DVCProHD and ProRes projects, while others stongly recommend

ProRes -- which would be a really time consuming Compressor conversion on my iMac!


Any help or tips on how to prep the movie prior to sending it out to a facility that creates DCPs will be much appreciated.


Thanks in advance.
