Fps in FCP ?
on Oct 7, 2010 at 12:50:29 pm

Hello all,

I've been trying to edit and work with 16fps footage in its native frame without success. I had to go back to FCP6 and make a new sequence with the right frame rate and drag into FCP7. Seems rather odd that a feature of arbitrary frame rates got removed ?

Or am I doing FCP7 a wrong ?

Thanks all !

FCP never had arbitrary frame rates. It has always been frame rate specific to standard video frames 23.976 and higher.

All the best,

Tom

Not in any FCP sequence you didn't. You might think it was 16fps, but it wasn't.

All the best,

Tom

QT allows to making movies with lower fps's for animations, but as Tom says, FC only works with standard video time-bases.

Ok sorry, I fibbed a bit before. You have to export an XML documnet and manually change the fps to
16. This seemed to work as a nasty bodge-job

It may be possible to do it in Compressor (8, 10, 12 and 15fps), but I've never tried.
