Wrong compound clip frame rate fix?
on Oct 7, 2018 at 9:57:22 pm

I've received an already edited short film to do a bit of finishing on. For some reason they have Red Dragon 5K 23.98 footage in synced 720p60 compound clips. I can modify the frame size of the compound clips. I assume there is still no way to adjust a compound clip frame rate once it is first established?

Any suggestions for how to most optimally work with this?

Are they synchronized clips or compound clips?

If its b-roll and no dialogue/audio go with the flow.
Ive ran into those and sometimes you overthink it.

Synchronized. Aren't those also compound clips? They are all dialogue; up to seven separate audio files with each video clip. I ended up breaking apart clip items and using roles to organize them in a usable way.

Also fun is the audio guy did not provide notes for what was what.

Not according to the XML. Synchronized clips and compound clips have different functions.

My suggestion was going to be break them apart and remake them if they are compound clips, but Synchronized clips are harder to do that in the timeline.

But with Syncrhonized clips, you'd have to export an XML, modify the format of each referenced format, and then reimport. It's much trickier, but doable.

Or, as you did, you can break apart the sync'd clips and use them that way.

For this short film, breaking them apart will work OK.
