This should go in the general inquiries, but I cant find that forum. So I'll post here ☺
This is hopefully a simple question, I hope.
First off, I'm in the UK, so 25fps for me, though I do prefer the look of 24fps.
I have recorded my footage at 50fps, so I can do slow mo when suitable. I dont want to have to keep changing my setting when recording an event, so thought it best to just keep it at 50fps. Is that the right practice?
When I take the all the files intothe software, what should I set the timeline to? Natively the timeline is set to 50fps, and the footage runs smoothly and 'normal'.
If I set the timeline to 25fps, the clip double in length and play at half speed. This is expected.
My main question, and I know it sounds dumb, should I have the timeline at 25fps or 50fps? And if I need to have it at 25fps, can I get the clip to run at 'normal' speed (dropping every other frame)?
If your footage is 50 fps and you edit it in a sequence that is 25fps Premiere will drop every other frame automatically to keep the same duration. You can then slow the clips down in the sequence when needed with time remapping.
