Convert 29.97 Sequence to 23.98
on Jun 16, 2011 at 1:27:46 pm

Hi there,

I have a project of about 20 X 11 minute episodes that are all 29.97 sequences, and I need to convert to 23.98 for some delivery purposes.

The source footage is from the SONY EX-3, 1080p24, 23.98 FPS.

Of course when you create a new sequence at 23.98, copy and paste your content, you get all those little black gaps. I'm trying to avoid solving this manually because I have so many sequences to do.

I was wondering if this is possible through exporting an EDL, converting the EDL to 23.98, then re-importing, and reconnecting.

I don't have much (any) experience with doing that, and I keep getting errors - the EDLs won't import, or don't export properly. I'm not sure exactly how to convert them through cinema tools even if they did..

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Allison

This has been discussed time and time again in this forum. I recommend a search using a term such as "29.97 to 23.98".

You'll be amazed at what turns up.

I did do quite a bit of searching but couldn't come up with any solutions to my specific problem.
But I will search some more!

Wait. YOur footage is 23.98...but you edited it into a 29.97 timeline? Why?

And sorry, there is no shortcut for this black-gap issue. Copy, paste...and do a whole lot of fixing. You painted yourself into a corner, and there isn't an easy button for getting out.
