So I work at a university and am creating promotional content for the big screen at football games. The machine that plays video files that go on the large stadium video board only accepts files in 59.94fps. Some weird broadcast or engineering thing. At least thats what I've been told.

So I'm trying to create cinematic content, and 60fps obviously won't give me the look I'm going for. I already have stuff shot in 24fps. Have you guys ever had to deal with a frame rate conversion like that for broadcast or other display? Whats the best way to go? Edit everything in a 24p timeline and do final output in 59.94? OR edit everything in a 59.94 timeline and just place the 24p clips in that 59.94p sequence?

Going forward, whats the best way to go? I would hate to shoot stuff for real time playback at 60fps, since the motion is just too smooth, so i'm thinking I'll shoot and edit everything in 24fps and do a conversion later. I'm not sure. We are frequently mixing cinematic footage with 60fps live-sports footage. Some guidance would be very much appreciated.

Shoot at 23.976. Edit 23.976 footage in a 59.94 timeline & export at 59.94. It should work. To work out the workflow, SHOOT TEST FOOTAGE SO YOU KNOW IT'LL WORK BEFORE YOU DO IT FOR REAL. Knowing it will work before you need it to work is part of the job.

Thanks Dave! I appreciate the advice and will definitely test it out. So just for my knowledge, why does 23.976 footage work better in a 59.94 timeline than 59.94 in a 23.976 timeline and converting to 59.94? Thanks again!

[Mike Kozlenko] "why does 23.976 footage work better in a 59.94 timeline than 59.94 in a 23.976 timeline and converting to 59.94?"

You can incorporate both 23.976 & 59.94 in a 59.94 timeline; and both frame rates will retain their original motion.

59.94 in a 23.976 timeline may result in funny footage cadences (wierd-looking motion at cuts). Then if the timeline is exported at 59.94, it will have more frames per second, but will have the jerkier motion typical of 23.976... plus the possibility of those funny-looking cadences. All in all, a bad deal.
