Shooting music video at 60fps to convert to 24fps?
on May 4, 2015 at 2:21:47 am

So I plan on shooting a music video in 60fps to later convert(what I usually do) in Sony Vegas to 24fps since I don't know which parts I would want to go back and put in slow motion.
Since I am shooting at 60fps, I would want the shutter speed at 1/125..but wouldn't this affect the clips that I convert to 24fps? It usually looks more "stuttery"
Does anyone know any way to fix this issue?
I don't like filming in 24fps then only filming a few parts in 60fps because it won't give me many options of clips to put in slo motion.
Does anyone know if I should be changing my shutter speed or anything? Please help!

do you have two cameras? You could shoot them side by side which would make post a lot easier. But isn't that what pre-planning is all about?

The shutter speed for 60fps should be 1/2x so 1/120th is fine, then when you decimate, slow down, or whatever, to 24, it will maintain the same blurryness factor. Now if your final product is 24fps, all your non-slowed down 60fps will have to go through optical software such as timewarp, twixtor, compressor, magic bullet, terranex, etc. to not be stuttery.

Isn't there a process called telecine?

sure, there's inverse telecine but that is 23.976 encapsulated in a reverse pulldown from 29.976. The actual framerate would still be still 23.976 in that case. I believe he's actually 60fps whole frames (not 29.97 interlaced frames at 59.94 fields/sec) since he said slowmo was needed.
