    Moving from a Video Project to a Film Project

    I am on a show where we shot 23.976 HD 1080p video as well as some film at 24 fps.  The original project was set up as strictly a 1080p/23.976 VIDEO project.  Is it possible to create a 1080p/23.976 FILM project and simply transfer all of my bins over?  I am aware that I won't be able to perf slip audio still (I've done heaps of testing with that), but, I would like to track Feet+Frames and I can't seem to do that in the VIDEO project.

    Has anyone tried this before?  Anything I should be aware of before doing it?

     You should be able to. Create a film based 1080p/23.976 project and copy a bin over to test to see if it meets your needs. Have you already captured the media?

    I have done a test with a bin and it seems to work fine.  All media has been previously captured.  The other nice thing about being in a FILM project is also the ability to group clips by Film TC/ Sound TC button.

    Do you know why Avid still separates things into "film" and "video" projects?  It seems like you would always want to be in a film project - for the tracking, perf slipping and group clipping abilities.
