Transcoding to lower resolution and framerate before audio sync and edit?
on Apr 21, 2014 at 1:32:54 pm

Hi,

I am working with a 4 camera shoot that was captured in 59.94. This was not my choice - just files that were given to me. I also have external audio at 48K. I do not need any of the advantages that the high frame rate gives me.

In the interest of saving disc space and processor capacity while editing, I am wondering if I transcode to 30 FPS if the external audio will still work when I re-sync. I'm trying to do a multiclip edit and I think that the 60 FPS at 1280x720 is too much for what my machine can handle.

If I drop the 60 FPS clip into a 30 timeline, will this take care of itself without transcoding?

Thanks,

Josh

Never change the frame rate unless you will FINISH in that frame rate. Don't edit 29.97fps if you intend on delivering 59.94. Oddness can happen.

If you don't think your system can take four streams 720p60, then convert to ProRes Proxy for editing, and then relink to the masters when you online.
