I have a serious codec problem and have a 3pm deadline for New Contemporaries a competition I have been shortlisted for. I am trying to convert two projects to their best quality All are taking ages and dropping frames! I know this project is a mess I made it before I knew what I was doing with HD.
editing in H.264 p25 (I know idiot, this is an old project before I knew how foolish it was)
sequence was set to Prores 244 p23.96 (i know another stupid thing) ( I tried changing sequence setting to h.264 p25 and it fubared from there)
Tried exporting prores244 p25 QT and QTC
tried exporting h.264 p25 QT and QTC
Can anyone help!!??!

You'll need to change your Easy Setup to ProRes 422 25fps. Then you'll need to copy and paste the clips from the old, bad timeline to the new timeline. Now, because of the frame rate discrepancy, gaps will appear between many of the cuts. You'll have to fix those manually. And then render...and then export.
Sorry, this will take time. I hope your sequence isn't too long.
