60fps footage inside 30 fps sequence in FCP 7
on Nov 11, 2019 at 11:14:04 pm

Hi, i'm using FCP7.

I have a 29.97 fps sequence. 90% of my footage was shot in 29.97 frame rate.
The other 10% of my footage is 60fps (like 59.90 fps). I have not dropped this footage into my timeline yet.

Wondering if i can keep it at 60, since 30 is divisible by 60.

Or if i u suggest that 60fps won't work in a 30 fps timeline, i'm williing to convert it down to 30 fps but i don't want to lose any frames in the 60fps footage.

NOTE: I DON"T NEED THE 60 fps FOOTAGE TO BE IN SYNC. So it's perfectly fine to have it play in slow-mo. in fact, that was the purpose of shooting in 60fps, so i could get more detail in the movement.

So, to sum up what i am asking, all other things being equal, is it OK to drop the 60 fps footage into the 30 fps timeline? And if not, Then when i convert this down to 30fps, is there a way to do it so that it retains all the frames (ie doesn't skip every other frame)?
