Deal with variable frame rate
on Oct 3, 2018 at 7:15:40 pm

I've got some video files shot on a camera with a variable frame rate. The FPS is between 26 (min) and 33 (max). Which is the best way to deal with these unusual video files while avoiding the audio getting out of sync? I want them to be 25 FPS. (Should I precompose each video file separately in a 25 FPS comp, or use the Posterize Time-effect?)

With a variance that large, you're pretty much out of luck if you want professional-looking results. If that's not a big deal for you then just shove 'em in a 25fps comp and have at it!

And if you DO expect professional results, you should know that shooting variable frame rates and the wrong frame rates isn't exactly professional... which means you're stuck.

I agree 100%, however, I wasn't the one who shot the material - it was handed to me.
Anyway, I put each video in its own 25 FPS-comp and just to be safe I also added a Posterize Time-effect to each clip.

Yeah, you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
