I would visit dvxusers.com at the canon t2i/60 forum section. You'll learn lots from there.
Off the top of my head:
-Try shooting only in 1080 as the 720 on these canon dslrs suck ass. UNLESS, you really want slow motion, then the 720 60fps mode is pretty useful.
-It's usually not a good idea to mix footages and stills. I always get a buffer indicator when I decide to take pics and video on the same memory card.
-For the smoothest "film look"... when shooting in 1080 @ 24p, try keeping the shutter at 1/50... I know in alotta situation you can't always pull this off but if you want that "film look" then I suggest sticking with that shutter speed. This is where an nd filter will help.
-Go into your camera menu option and set "movie exposure" to manual.
-Your camera has different picture styles. "faithful" and "standard" give the best image right out the camera but gives little headroom for color grading. A setting I like to use is "neutral" with sharpness turned all the way down, contrast down two notches, saturation down two notches and color tone in the middle. Eventually, you might want to experiment with custom picture profiles like "super flat" and "marvel cine"
-Having the sharpness down helps minimize aliasing but won't get rid of it. You'll notice lots of aliasing when shooting wide and deep. My advice is to take advantage of those wide apertures and get some decent shallow dof going. Or if your shooting on an ultra wide lens, to slightly back off the focus a little. Once I finish working on my video, i'll post it up so you can see what I mean.
-If you decide to get a zoom lens, try getting one with a constant aperture.
ya, that all I could think of right now, lol.
