Producer handed the files on an SXS card and copied to hard disk.
Imported the file to FCP and the footages seems to be in slow motion.
Checked frame rate and noticed that the rushes are 30fps.
Producer claims that it was shot in 60fps.
Am I missing some workflow?
Rushes are not modified or converted. They are 30fps files played back in slow motion.
If speed changed to 200%, then apparently it plays back in real time.
I assume that if a footage is shot in 60fps then it should play back in 60fps real time, not in slow motion right? But the files I received are from the card itself directly from the camera. There are no conversions or modifications made on the footage yet. I just preview them and they appear to be in slow motion.
Director: claims footage was shot in 60fps Arri Alexa.
Editor: reports the footage is slow motion in 30fps.
I don't know if there is something wrong or DOP mistake on camera settings.
