24.97fps??

Hi,

I am trying to export my 29.97fps FCP file to 25fps. No matter how I do it the final QT movie appears as 24.97fps. Does anyone know how to export a movie with 25fps? Please help!

You can not export directly to 25fps. What you need to do is export a QuickTime Movie from FCP and bring that into Compressor. Once in Compressor, you can choose the export codec you need and manipulate your frame rate. Your other alternative is to get the Nattress standards conversion plug in to do this in FCP.

And never trust what Quicktime says the speed is. It is highly inaccurate.

Thank you for your answer. While I was waiting I googled and found out about Cinema Tools and used it to convert the quicktime to 25fps. It appears as 25fps in various players. Do you think it's ok or it's still better to use the FCP compressor? I would love to hear opinion. Thank you!

By using Cinema Tools you CONFORMED the frame rate to 25. It now runs a bit slower because you took a slightly higher frame rate and changed it. To CONVERT the frame rate -- which is changing the frame rate without altering its speed -- use Compressor.

29.97 to 25 is a huge slow down - just over 16%. That will look weird and change the audio pitch dramatically.

Compressor to convert as Dave said not Cinema Tools conform is the way to go.

i suspect Yoshiko has exported a 29.97 timeline as 25fps.

and this displayed as 24.97 in QT for whatever reason,
and it is this same file that was conformed to 25.

so the playback speed should be pretty accurate, BUT there will be a missing frame every 6 frames,
making for very jerky motion.

who knows... if the piece is all still images, no one will notice!


but the correct approach is to export a QT movie, same settings.
then convert that in COmpressor, oR bring it back into FCP, and use Nattress Standards Converter

Hi all,

Thank you for all your tips. What I did was to export 29.97fps movies to 24.97fps, then I used Cinema Tools to conform it to 25fps. I followed the tips above by using the FCP's compressor and exported it as 25fps. My piece is about 3 minutes so the difference turned out to be just 4 frames after all.

In any case it's great to have discovered this issue which I had no knowledge of before. Thanks all!
