Editing with different frame rates
on Jul 31, 2015 at 6:04:13 am

I want to edit in FCP7 using clips of different frame rates. Some clips are 23.98 and others 29.97. I thought it was a bad idea to mix frame rates in FCP7 because I thought it could potentially make the video out of sync, but I wanted to be sure so I asked an editor about this and he said:

"FCP 7 will render footage which does not match these project settings for frame rate or image size automatically, so there’s nothing you need to do, once you edit a clip into the timeline."

I wanted to get a second opinion about this because I could've sworn I read somewhere it's bad to mix frame rates in FCP7. Can someone tell me if it's okay to mix frame rates in FCP7? Thank you!

the main reason it's bad to do this in FCP7 is that it does such a bad job of handling the difference in frame rates.

i know that for mixing 24 and 25 fps footage it simply adds or deletes a frame every second.

Premiere Pro or Avid are both suposed to do a better job.
