Workflow, when to reduce FPS?
on Oct 9, 2011 at 10:20:29 am

Hi everyone,

I'm using the panasonic tm900 recording at 50p.

I want the result to be 24p.

So, i can convert at 2 points, at the point of ingestion (using a mts converter to go to pro res), converting all the clips to 24p before I go into final cut, or at the very end.

I'm not sure which is more appropriate and why.

Also, I use a zoom h4n for audio, and I don't know if there are syncing issues that can come up with converting FPS early on.

It would be nice to edit the clips already in 24p, so I can see what the result will look / feel like.

thanks!

Why not shoot 24p?

Good question.

on the panny tm900, you can only shoot 24p in manual mode, so the question is for those times when i need the auto.

but also sometimes, i forget to change the setting to 24p, like the current clips i've got.

and shooting in 50 / 60p is good if doing slow mo i hear and knowing when to convert is good too.


thanks!

The best results will be if you shoot 24p rather than derive it from another frame rate. Depending on what you're shooting, I'd suggest that having to shoot manually isn't such a bad idea anyway.

true that.

though, i also have clips that were *accidentally recorded in the wrong fps from before, so i still need to convert and im trying to figure out when that is best to do in the workflow and why.

thanks
