How to change frame rate (i.e. reconform) MP4 files?
on Jan 12, 2012 at 10:38:24 am

Hi all:

I normally use Cinema Tools in order to reconform a file, i.e. change its frame rate in order to make slow motion effects, speed ramps, etc. However, after importing some slow motion (100fps) footage I just recorded with the GoPro, I found that Cinema Tools apparently can't process H264 files. It won't even open .MP4 files, and after rewrapping them as Quicktimes (although still with the H264 codec), it can open them, but the "Conform" option is greyed out.

Does anyone know about some other tool that can be used to change the frame rate in an MP4 file, without having to transcode it first to ProRes?

Thanks in advance,


Paulo.

Hi Paulo,
is not about being H264 but about not being Intraframe.
CC can conform any codec but not GOP stuff.
In fact CC can cope with the H264 rom the Canon because is Intra.
You need to convert.

Out of interest, since you're posting on an FCP forum, why WOULDN'T you want to transcode if you're working in FCP?

You'd certainly have more options for manipulating the video (as you've just found out).

Well, certainly, but I was just looking for a quick and dirty way to view the slow-motion files I've just recorded, without having to go through the hassle of transcoding, reconforming, etc. Transcoding can take a while, after all.
