Correct project settings for 16mm scans?
on Apr 9, 2019 at 12:39:17 am

Hi,

I'm working with 16mm source scanned as a tiff image sequence for the first time and wondering how I should set up my project. A bit confused about the frame rate amoung other things.

Should my project frame rate be 24fps given film is 24fps?

But then if I'm finishing on video don't I need to encode it at 25fps? (PAL region)

By the way I'm working with an old CS6 version on a Mac.

If anyone could set me straight on this that would be great.

you'd have to determine what the native film frame-rate was, since you'll be choosing between odd looking speed changes or optical interpolation.

It was shot at 24fps, but was the image sequence shot 1 to 1 with any pull down, etc.?

It’s never as easy as you think, “most of the time.”

I’m going into a no cell zone, so y’all are on your own to sort out this mini-mystery.

where's it going to? DVD? PAL can playback NTSC 23.976 stuff, web, doesn't matter.
