29.97 and 23.98 mixed frame rate workflow for finishing in AVID
on Jun 8, 2012 at 12:38:31 am

Former avid guy, fcp guy, avid guy again. Now with that disclaimer out of the way -

What is the proper workflow for dealing with mixed frame rates? DP shot multiple cameras and had some set at 29.97 and some 23.98. I know you can load the 24p stuff in a 24p project, load the 29.97 stuff in a 29.97 project and open bins from one project in the other.

So, say you edit a sequence with mixed frame rates. How do you deal with that sequence when it's time to export a file, or even "master" to a file rather than tape? Won't AVID convert the 24p to 29.97 upon transcoding, but do it rather badly? i.e, no real pulldown?

What's the correct workflow?

[Chris Tomberlin] "What is the proper workflow for dealing with mixed frame rates?"

You can mix them fine in Avid MC 4 and up. Avid mixes frame rates REALLY well. Unlike FCP. Just choose the format you want to deliver, and use those project settings.

[Chris Tomberlin] "So, say you edit a sequence with mixed frame rates."

Yup, I just said that.

[Chris Tomberlin] "How do you deal with that sequence when it's time to export a file, or even "master" to a file rather than tape?"

Just export to the format you need. The frame rate mixing will still look fine.

[Chris Tomberlin] "Won't AVID convert the 24p to 29.97 upon transcoding"

If you use 29.97 project settings, yes, it will.

[Chris Tomberlin] "but do it rather badly? i.e, no real pulldown?"

No, it'll do it very well.
