DPX Time base
on Sep 7, 2012 at 8:45:14 am

I have a few shots that are in DPX sequence format and should be 24 fps. I load them into Resolve and they seem to be playing at 30fps because they lose sync very fast and look sped up. I tried right-clicking the clips in the media pool and selecting "attributes" and setting the clip to 24fps but it doesn't seem to have any effect no matter what I select. My timeline in Resolve is at 24fps. Anyone else have trouble with this?

are you sure that your io is not limiting factor here ?

No it's actually right in the timeline. The DPX sequences are to replace earlier versions of the same clips in the timeline but when I put them in they are about 80% shorter than the originals. Changing the time base of the DPX clips should effect their duration but it doesn't seem to be.

Figured this one out... Somehow the VFX person messed up the timing and exported the sequences as 30fps. Not sure how they did that as you'd have to go out of your way to re-time an image sequence but hey... It is still confusing how selecting 30fps, 60fps, etc has no effect on the clip duration in Resolve. I suppose it automatically plays the images at one frame per frame of your timeline's time base. Makes sense. Thanks for your help anyway.
