Hi everyone! I was trying to record 60fps footage on a Lumix GH5s for the first time, but as far as I can see in both QuickTime and Premiere Pro, the footage is practically 30fps - i.e., every two adjacent frames are identical. I'm not sure what went wrong?? Or is it a footage interpretation issue?
Setting I used on GH5s:
Rec Format: MP4 (LPCM)
Rec Quality: 4K 8bit 150M 60p
In QuickTime (Mac):
Inspector window says "FPS: 59.94";
When I advance the video frame by frame, every two adjacent frames are identical.
In Adobe Premiere Pro 2018 (Mac), imported full-res not using proxy:
Properties window says "Frame rate: 59.94";
When I go through the footage frame by frame, every two adjacent frames are identical;
If I "Interpret Footage" as 29.97fps, it plays slo-mo but stuttering, i.e., every two adjacent frames are still identical.
So bottomline, the camera seems to have recorded 30 unique frames per second (each frame twice), instead of 60 unique frames per second.
