Strange thing about vid rate
on Sep 27, 2017 at 3:18:00 pm

I have a prores clip that the FCP vid rate column tells me is 29.97, but when I open the same clip in QT the info window says it is 23.98.

Anyone know why?

Quicktime is notoriously unreliable at reporting clip info. FCP is much more reliable.

...and what kind of clip is it? Does it have 3:2 Pulldown?

Maybe? It was canon 5d footage shot in a cinematic mode/style

My guess is it's 23.976, aka 23.98. I would transcode a long clip to ProRes 422, view it in FCP and see if it looks OK.
