Stretch vs. Interpret Footage
on Sep 27, 2016 at 6:10:48 pm

I do a fair amount of time manipulation of video footage and I've been using Interpret Footage to change frame rates. But I'm wondering what, if anything, is the difference between that method and stretching/contracting the footage using Stretch function in the timeline.

With interpret footage you are setting the footage/sequence to run at a different frame rate. So the duration changes but you are seeing every frame there is. When you are time remapping the footage AE (or whatever program you have) will need to create or remove frames.

So for example if you edit 24 fps footage to a 25 fps sequence without interpreting it there would be an extra frame at the end of each second to keep the duration the same. Editing a 60 fps footage into a 30 fps sequence would drop every other frame.
