I'm shooting greenscreen with the Sony F-900 for an eventual down-conversion to SD. The client likes "the pulldown look" and wants everything 23.98P. Will pulldown artifacts noticeably affect the composite (which will be made after downconversion)?
I expect no more so than 35mm shot 24fps and composited on SD video. Still, I wonder if there is a frame rate that is kinder and cleaner for eventual SD composites (say for instance 30p)? Any ideas?
Also, any experiences with Clearscan in regard to 23.98, shutter speed and sound sync? Am I right in thinking I lose the effect of the 1/48th shutter while using ECS, or can I have my ECS frequency and 1/48th shutter at the same time?

Pull down removal is pretty much automatic at this point, so as long as the cadences are maintained should not be any particular problem. There will be no pull down artifacts, if done correctly.
Still would insist on doing VFX in HD land if it was my project, much better control of everything in everyway.
best of luck
