Reconnect Conformed Files
on Nov 1, 2011 at 11:27:08 pm

So I filmed my footage at 30fps but wanted to conform it to 24fps and edit with that. I didn't know how to do that at the time, so I created the apple prores file of the 30fps footage and imported that to final cut. I'm finished editing, and I've now figured out how to conform the files to 24fps using cinema tools. I conformed the files to 24fps and am now trying to reconnect the conformed files to the clips in my timeline, but i'm getting this error message "Some attributes of one or more of the files you have chosen do not match the attributes of the original. This may cause problems within the sequences that are dependent on them. The attributes that differed are as follows: -Media Start and End" every time i try.

My question is, is there anyway to change the files in my timeline to the conformed files without having to begin my editing again?

Any help with this is much appreciated!

Thx!

[elizabeth charles] "My question is, is there anyway to change the files in my timeline to the conformed files without having to begin my editing again?"

Nope.

You did a bad thing. Editing, finishing, then changing the frame rate of your masters. FCP cannot reconnect to media with differing frame rates. Because the duration of the footage is different, and the frame rate is different. The footage has the same amount of frames..., but now they play at a different frame rate, so the duration is different. You'll have to re-edit with the new masters.

But...RECONFORM...that changes the frame rate, as well as the speed in which they play. 30fps conformed to 24fps will play in slight slow motion. If you want the footage to play at a different frame rate, but the same speed...normal speed...you need to use Compressor.

I'd kind of like to know what your goal was in this case Elizabeth? Why exactly did you want to change to 24fps???

THNX,
David

I was conforming it to 24 so that it would play slightly slower, that's the reasoning behind it. I guess i'll just have to reedit it.

You can always output a quicktime file at 29.97 and then change the rate to 24 using Cinema Tools and the file will play your edit properly but slower.

But the audio will also be slow.

Same as the workflow she is doing anyway.
