Chapter 1. Getting the 24P Mindset > Why Bother with 24P?

Why Bother with 24P?

Making video look like film is one reason, and a good one, to consider 24p equipment and techniques. But that’s not the only reason. The others include:

Film out. The 24p process can simplify the technicalities and expense involved in achieving film out, or transfer of digital video production to film for theatrical distribution. Although commercial theaters are expected to convert to digital projection eventually, a film-less distribution system isn’t yet a reality. Digital projection is currently limited to some theaters in major U.S. cities. And for foreign theatrical markets, distribution on film is the rule and will likely remain so for years to come. So producing for the film medium—even though you may be using all-digital production methods—is still an important consideration for the serious filmmaker.
