How did my captured video turn out 28.36 FPS?
on Jul 15, 2011 at 2:36:39 am

I captured some SD video off of a consumer camcorder for a friend and passed along .the mov files. It turns out that the FPS is 28.36. This appears to be a strange and unusual rate for video. I'm trying to figure out why or how this happened. Can anybody shed some light on this?

Don't rely on the Quicktime viewer for accurate information. Bring the clips into FCP and look at the information you find in the Browser.

That is because FCP's capture system SUCKS and if it drops frames it will just give a wrong fps file. So it has dropped frames and therefore displays all wonky.
