I just watched the tutorial by Shane Ross on converting to smooth slow motion using Cinema Tools. I have opened my PorRes clip in Cinema Tools and The "Conform" button (actually all buttons) are greyed out and I am unable to do anything within the program?? Any ideas what I am doing wrong? Thanks
There are only two reasons I can think of why this doesn't work. One is that your source file isn't actually ProRes but some other codec that is not an I-frame codec. Cinema Tools can only conform frame rate of files that are I-frame, such as DV, DVCProHD, ProRes, etc. The other reason is that you don't have read/write access to the file where it lives. Check permissions - Cinema Tools conform feature will rewrite an aspect of the file as it exists, so it must be able to write over the existing file. Try making a duplicate of the original file first before trying to conform.
