Canon 5D Mark III 60fps wont convert in cinema tools

Hi everyone

I have a project which was shot on the canon 5D mark III, all the footage was filmed at 59.94fps 1280x720, when i try and convert the footage to 25fps in cinema tools, the conform button is greyed out, and when i batch conform, the clip is skipped and the error message says

"skipped- the movie has temporal compression"

prior to importing into cinema tools i converted the footage to ProRes files keeping the same frame rate.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how i can fix the issue? or is my only alternative to slow the footage down by 40% in the timeline? which is not ideal

I am using FCP7 and cinema Tools 4.5.1

thanks for your help

Zoe

SO this footage is ProRes, 1280x720 at 59.94...and Cinema Tools won't recognize it?

How did you convert?

[Shane Ross] "SO this footage is ProRes, 1280x720 at 59.94...and Cinema Tools won't recognize it?"
That happens when converingt to Prores with 5DtoRGB."
Curiously the resulting Prores files shows up in CinemaTool as "GOP" stuff (no Intraframe), so CinemaTools won't conform them.
This is a bug of 5DtoRGB. I contacted the developers about this problem years ago, but haven't been fixed.

Solution: 5DtoRGB can conform footage to a different time base at the same time that converts.

Hi Shane that's correct, I converted using Pavtube.

Thanks Rafael, so what software would you suggest I use to reconvert the footage?

Thanks

The best quality option is 5DtoRGb, but as I wrote you can't conform the Prores files with CinemaTools.
You can convert and change the time base while converting.
Won't need CinemaTools.
You may need double file conversions, one for normal speed and one for the slow down.
