Just a little question about frame rates..
If I film 1080p HD footage at 60fps should I edit in 60 fps...?
Can you edit 60fps footage at 30fps and not loose any quality the same way you edit 720p HD 120 fps at 30 fps in FCPX..
The reason I ask is because I'm
Not sure my iMac core i3 will handle the file size..
I've exported a couple of movies at 30 fps and 60fps to test the quality and the 60fps looks slightly better..
I'm just learning the whole edit thing.. I thought you had to edit what you shot in, but I'm learning it's not the case..
I just edit at 29.97 now.. I've found no difference in quality if I edit in 60 or 30 fps.
I just save all my footage as a master file and play it back on the PC rather than burn it..
Out of curiosity what's the difference with the frame rate you edit in as opposed to what you capture in..?
So I understand..
Thanks for that, I'm no professional I just like to tinker as a hobby.. I just want to get the best out of the footage I shoot.. I plan on filming my holiday to the South Pacific in feb with my gopro black plus mainly in 30fps and some footage in 60fps which I want to slow down. So there will be no quality difference between 60 fps and 30fps footage if not slowed down..?
