Cinema Tools conform BEFORE or AFTER ProRes Conversion?
on Jun 28, 2012 at 4:51:03 pm

Hi,

I shot a music video yesterday with a Canon 7D at 60fps with the intention of converting it all to slow motion (23.976) using the conform tool in Cinema Tools.

My question is whether it's better to conform the frame rate BEFORE or AFTER converting the footage to ProRes LT (so converting the H.264 from the 7D) or whether it makes any bit of difference.

Thanks!

After. Duplicate the clip if you want to use it normal speed too. this conform is destructive...no going back. Unless you convert the master clip again.

You don't have a choice. Cinema Tools can't conform long-GOP/interframe codec footage (h.264, XDCAM, HDV, etc.), only intraframe codec footage (Pro Res, DVCPRO HD, etc.).

If I'm not wrong the H264 from the Canon is Intra (1f GOP) so can be directly conformed by CinemaTools.
XDCAM MPEG-2 intra (Nano-Flash) can be conformed as well.

You're correct. Add AVC Intra to the list as well. It's interframe codecs that are not supported.
