How to change Frame Rate from Imagesequence
on Aug 1, 2012 at 3:45:30 pm

Hello DaVinci Gurus,

It´s so nice - after the softwaretraining one can think, that you are prepared for a real world job - and the grading works well - but there are some little traps I have to take - that was no question so far.

I imported a OpenEXR Sequence wich was intended to be at 25 frames per second. But I don´t now why, DaVinci recognices that sequence as 24 frames. This is shown in the new Media Tag in Release 9 in the Metadata overview. And in the confirm tab I got the warning triangle, that there is a resolution conflict.
The OpenEXR are at 720p, the settings in the Master Project Settings are at 25fps in the Video monitoring format.

The option to calculate timecode is greyed out and set at 24fps...

This issue is also in the deliver tab relevant. I can´t render a quicktime mov at 25 fps, only at 24 or at 23.98.

So I´m sure that there is a easy solution for this.

Thanks a lot - again :)

Ok - sorry for this stupid question - found the clip Attributes by right klickin on the clip in the media tab -

But my timeline is still in 24 fps and the settings in the master project settings are still nailed to 24 fps in the confom options dalculate timecade as 24 - greyed out no chance to edit this value...

Frustrated from the greyed out "calculate timecode at" option I started with a new project and in the first setup I was free to set everything to 25 fps - the timeline works at 25 fps - the outputoptions are at 25fps as well - seems like everything is fine now - with the new project.

But during the setup the 25 is greyed out in the "calculate timecode at" again. So I think that after a certain setup - you can not change the fps to another framerate?

This would be sad for me, cause I graded my 24 fps project the whole day and this would mean, that I have to do the gradings again with the working project with 25 fps...

Maybe there is an option to change the old project from 24 fps to 25?
This would be great.

thx

Felix

the Davinci manual clearly states that you have to set the "timeline calculated at" option before adding media to the media pool, or starting grading.
Also there is a Davinci "lite" forum for questions like this:

this makes it clear.

Tried some workaround like saving the working 25fps project as preset and using this for the 24 fps project - the existing 24fps timelines don´t accept the new presets. So it seems that I have to grade the session again - but hey - this gives practice and puts my eye in the future to the correct settings before starting to confirm stuff...

thx for your help

in the 24 fps project export all stills.
open up the 25 fps project, and copy all grades for the clips.

Or use colortrace:)

The manual ALSO states it clear how to use Color Trace (tm)
I suggest moving to the basic forum for now.

Late response to this post, but figured it might help.

There is no real elegant way to do this, but I found if you export a 24 FPS .xml from one sequence, and a 23.976 FPS .xml from another project, you can get around the blockade of not being able to mix media that were created at different frame rates.

I opened my .fcpxml with TextEdit:

XML header should have the following:
<fcpxml version="1.3">
<project name="RB_23976 (Resolve)">
<resources>
<b> <format width="1920" height="1080" id="r0" frameDuration="1001/24000s" name="FFVideoFormat1080p2398"/></b>

You may have to either search / replace :
<clip duration="223/8s" offset="43453/12s" enabled="1" format="r3" tcFormat="NDF" name="M21-1858_[00000-00669].dng" start="0/1s">
<b> <conform-rate srcFrameRate="24"/></b>
<adjust-crop mode="trim">
<trim-rect right="0" left="0" bottom="0" top="0"/>
</adjust-crop>
<adjust-transform scale="1 1" rotation="0" anchor="0 0" position="0 0"/>
<adjust-blend amount="1"/>
<video duration="67067/2400s" offset="0/1s" ref="r4" start="0/1s"/>
</clip>


conform-rate srcFrameRate="24"
after the clip name seems to do the job.

I had to do this with some DNG sequences that I had begun to grade in 24 FPS that I wanted to conform in an existing 23.976 sequence. Messy but if you're in a jam it can help.

I had this very same issue - at the end of a large grading session, I discovered my timeline was set to 24fps instead of 25fps. All the posts I found said "It's not possible to change the settings", but in the end, I managed to do that!

You need to go to your Resolve projects directory (here it's C:\Program Data\Blackmagic Design\Support\Resolve Disk Database\Resolve Projects\), and open the project directory.You'll see a bunch of folders and xml files. Now, you need to edit the XML files and search for some strings and replace these with some other values:

Changes I did:

project.xml:
24 ===> 25

00000000000038400000000000000000 ===> 00000000000039400000000000000000


config2.xml

24 ===> 25
24 ===> 25

sessions/some-code.xml
00000000000038400000000000000000 ===> 00000000000039400000000000000000

That's it! I have my project set to 25fps and I'm delivering at this frame rate..:-) Hope this helps - I don't see a reason why this cannot be changed in Resolve directly....
