60p to 25p, keep every frame

Recommended Posts

THere must be a way to do this! I just want to get slow mo. I'm on a 25p timeline and I've been given 60p footage to incorporate. Its all silent.  I've dropped the 60p (59.94) into premiere and slowed it down 41.71%.  Seems a bit of a bodgy way to do it. Is there a better way?  (like in virtualdub? Ideally you could just hack the header info to change the time signature.

You mean you want to keep the motion information of every frame when not in slomo (i.e. when a time ramp starts at 100% speed)?

 

At first, you have to interpret the 60p footage as 25p footage (2,4 x slomo during playback in 25p timeline). Now if you speed up the stuff, there are several methods: frame skipping, frame blending and what Adobe calls pixel motion (method to be chosen in some contextual menu, don't work with Adobe much). With the latter, not every second and then addiotionally every fortieth frame are skipped, resulting in jerky playback, also the said "cut throughs" are not crossfaded, resulting in occasionally visible ghosting (but the method can look good, depending on the evenness of the movements). Instead, the whole motion within 60 frames is analyzed and completely new 24 frames are being interpolated. Though obviously the most advanced method, it works best with non-solid, organic motifs. If you follow someone on a bicycle, for example, the software may have problems to distinguish the stiff frame changing perspective ever so slightly from frame to frame from autonomous motion. It may look similar to rolling shutter. Allegedly there are some differences in quality to the Twixtor plugin, but all in all, the problem persists.

 

You should perform your own tests.

you choose the 60p footage on the library then go modify footage>interpret footage and change the 60p frames numbers by hand to 25

 

step by step here:

 

In the Project panel, right-click the desired clip.
Select Modify > Interpret Footage, and do one of the following:
Select Use Frame Rate From File,
Select Assume This Frame Rate, and type the number of frames per second.
Click OK.

 

then drag the clip to your timeline and its in slowmotion

 

ths is the most seamless way to do it

Thanks christina, Hurrah! I knew there must be a simple way to do this. :)
I think every time I've asked this before everyone has assumed that I wanted the best option for frameblending or pulldown (sorry axel) :)

      Hi all,
      Hoping someone can help with this edit workflow question:
      I currently shoot video on Canon DSLRs (in H264 MOV format), and edit on a late 2009 iMac (2.8ghz i7 processor, 16gb memory).
      The films I make are mainly for web rather than TV broadcast, and beyond basic colour grade / tidying up, have minimal effects added (no CGI).
      Until recently, I used Final Cut Pro 7, using FCP's Log & Transfer function to import and edit footage in Pro Res 422 format.
      Having just moved to Premiere Pro CC 2017, I'm trying to figure out the most efficient workflow with the best resulting image.
      Should I import and edit in native H264 MOV? Or ingest and edit as either Pro Res or DNxHD?
      If Pro Res or DNxHD, what's the best way to ingest (or import / transcode)?
      I've been reading mixed things via Google; mainly Adobe-related articles explaining a native workflow, vs various articles sponsored by transcoding software companies, saying that transcoding will have a better result.
      Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
      Thanks!
      Elliot

      Tried to capture the essence of the fun, up-tempo and a bit melancholy synth-pop of the 80'ies. The decade I loved so much. I made this with a lot of old gear for the music. As for image I used only a Sony A6000 with the kit-lens and the 55mm 1.8. Some of the shots are also the iPhone 6 with a 4K hack. Most of the shots with that worked ok, but it's not 100% stable.

      Magic Lantern RAW 14bit video.
      Graded in Davinci Resolve.
      Mostly 6D, very few shots on 5D3.
      Thanks for watching,

      I recently shot a music video with the GH4(in 4k) and GH2(1080) all the footage looks really good in preview playback but I notice a Gamma change with the .mov GH4 files if I open in FCP or VLC? I've had this problem with RED files and I just continued editing with the darkened gamma change because the files seem to correct themselves upon export. With that said I have a couple questions with how I should continue with this project or if there is a better way.
      My workflow plan right now is to Transcode first all of AVCHD GH2 files with 5dToRGB to PRORES 422HQ
      After that I'll import the PRORES files into FCP and drag a clip to the timeline and match the sequence settings to the clip because the final deliverable will be in 1080.
      My question is with the 4k footage and if this workflow makes sense? Should I import the .mov files directly into the 1080 sequence? or should I transcode the .mov files to 4K PRORES? I know importing the .mov files will slow me down because I'll have to constantly render but I don't want to lose image quality in conversion.
      My concern is the gamma will change and I wont know the true image quality until after I export. I just want to keep the images looking like they are.
      What would be some of your workflows when working with the same type media?
