samsung s9+ footage betw 28 and 29fps
on Mar 19, 2020 at 4:28:37 am

Hi!

I am editing a video on FCP7.
I shot a bunch of clips on Samsung s9+ in 1920x1080. The frame rate however varies slightly with every clip, ie 29.79, 28.85, 28.83, etc etc
I am wondering when i transcode all these clips to prores, what should i set the project FRAME RATE at?

Also, second question:
On compressor where i am transcoding the footage to prores, in the Inspector there is a setting under frame size (1920x1080) called "Pixel aspect". What should i select for this? Default? HDV1080i? square? other options there as well, not sure which is best.

Please let me know,
thanks

29.97 Progressive. So 1920x1080 29.97p

Don't change anything. Choose the ProRes 422 preset and just go with it. Don't change anything. ProREs isn't HDV...HDV is thin raster or 1440x1080...and ProRes is full raster 1920x1080. DO NOT TOUCH any setting on the preset.

Thanks!

Also...
For, the samsung footage i wanna retain best quality so Prores 422 is perfect. However, other footage i have is of a lesser quality (from youtube) and transcoding it to to Prores would take up way too much hard disk space. Wondering if there is another format i can transcode my other footage to, which i can still use in the same project as the Prores 422 footage.
Please let me know,
thanks

you could go ProResLT, thats pretty decent quality.
ProRes proxy is not good enough, i'd say.

you can't really use compressed formats like H264 in FCP7, so just forget those
hard drives are not too expensive these days... ☺


cheers,
nick
