different frame size and rate
on Feb 3, 2012 at 11:33:36 pm

Hi All,

I have some footage shot with different cameras (lumix and 2 GO PRO cameras),and need to put all together in one timeline, I´m using Final Cut Pro 7. I already read some posts but cant understand which works for me. So this is what i have:


Frame Syze:1920x1080
Frame Rate: 25 FPS
Scan Type: interlaced
Aspect Ratio: 16:9


Frame Size: 1280x960
Frame Rate: 29.97 FPS
Scan Type: Progressive
Aspect Ratio: 4:3


Frame Size: 1280X720
Frame Rate: 50 FPS
Scan Type: Progressive
Aspect Ratio: 16:9

I think I should convert all to apple pro res 422, but i'm confuse to what frame size and rate should i choose.
I want to do some slow motions too, what is the best option?? Conform in cinema tools??
I try to convert 29fps with1280x960 to 25fps with 1280x720, but image looks flattened. when I convert 29 to 25fps without change the frame size, looks good, but i will still have to render this footage in final cut, and is not what i want.
should i convert interlaced to progressive?
I intend to deliver my movie to a boadcast channel and want to upload to youtube.
I need to send a format that plays in PC too.

Any and all advice would be appreciated!!

This is actually a bit complicated because of the frame rates. What is your final deliverable? That will determine the details of your transcode.
