footage with different framerates?
on Dec 12, 2014 at 10:56:39 am

I'm trying to create a little film about my last vacation with Sony Vegas Pro 13.

The problem is, that I shot with different cameras, so now I have the following footage data (everything is full hd):
  • 25fps (interlaced)
  • 50fps (progressive)
  • 59,940fps (progressive)
  • 60fps (progressive) - this is an animation created with After Effects, so this could be altered.

  • So my idea was, to set up a Vegas-project with 60fps progressive. That works just fine for the 59,940- and 60fps-footage. 50fps seems to be smooth, but the 25fps interlaced footage is a little bit stuttering. So I googled and found the trick to disable resampling in Vegas - but it's still stuttering.

    So, how should I proceed? What is the best way to set up my project? Should I stick to the highest framerate used in the project, the lowest or something in between?
    Note: I want to watch the finished film on a PAL-TV.

    Thanks in advance!

    Select the 25.000 (PAL) framerate instead, if everything plays
    smoothly on the timeline, then go with that.
    Your render framerate must be the same as the Vegas Project framerate.

    Thanks Steve. I found out, that 50p suits best. Everything is smooth as I wish (just a little little bit stuttering for the interlaced-footage, but I guess that's Vegas' deinterlacer).

    Thanks again, now I'm ready to go! ;-)
