7d 50fps to 25fps (but not for slow mo)

Hi
If anyone can lend a hand I'd appreciate it.

I recently shot a whole heap of footage on 7d at 50fps.
I did this so i had the option to slow it down and play around in the edit.

However- the footage that I want to play normal speed (in a comp @25fps) looks jerky.

Does anyone know any tricks to iron out the jitters?


breakdown of the work flow:
Shot 7d @50fps
Edit in FCP prores @25fps


Sorry if I sound like a kook,

many thanks

I know nothing about FCP except my son uses it and it needs rendering to smooth it out on his MAC.
I use H264 mov at 25fps in a PC from a Canon EOS 5D mark II and in Premiere Pro it will only run smoothly if you render the whole timeline. But, when you do , it does look very, very good.we are in PAL land and we have just downloaded the latest Firmware 2.0.4 so that we can record at 25 fps PAL or 30fps NSTC

In retrospect, if your Export speed is different in your Project to the imported clips you could have a problem, it should be the same and you may need to maintain pitch for good sound, as in Premiere Pro it will look uneven. If you can check your Speed/Duration it may give you a clue ????????

I'd open up CreativeCow Final Cut Pro Forum it may be better than Canon, i might add the H264 mov. files have been giving editors are lot of trouble with underpowered computers and software. Final Cut Pto have just issed an upgrade patch for FCP for Canon, see the Canon web site.

Here is a tutorial. It is a pretty simple process. You convert the footage to ProRes (at 50fps), then using Cinema Tools you can batch conform the footage to 25fps (takes about 5 seconds per clip).

Enjoy,

The Canons are ok but,it appears both Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro are deficient, have a look at Aaron's suggestion.
