59.97 FPS (60 FPS)

davelamm wrote on 4/18/2013, 12:19 AM

I shot a number of videos on my HD camera that has a 1920 x 1080 (16;9) resolution. It shot it at 59.97 frames per second (FPS). The highest resolution option in Movie Edit Pro 17 allows for 29.97 FPS. I have tried using the "User Defined" setting when opening a new project but it still plays the video twice as fast as the audio.

 

How can I force Movie Edit Pro 17 use my video that is already shot in 60 FPS? I will know for future videos to have the camera record at 30 FPS but can not go back in time and capture the video I already shot in 60 FPS. Please help.

In the User defined project settings typing in the framerate, at the setting bottom right of the dialog, to 60 works for me.

John, I think I tried what you were telling me to do and it did not fix the problem. Here is what I did.

Opened a new project (Ctrl+N)

Movie Settings - User Defined, then OK

File --> Settings --> Movie

In Video Setting I changed the FPS box to reflect 59.94 and hit okay.

Dragged and dropped my video into the timeline and the audio and video do not match up.

What am I doing wrong? In your explanation can you please provide step by step paths as to how to change my setting to allow the software to edit 60 FPS video? Thanks in advance.

Hi

What is your video camera and which format/settings are you recording at?

Hi

The program should prompt you that it will adjust the Movie settings to match the imported material when you drag the clip to the timeline. If not you may need to reactivate the prompts in the Program settings.

If changing the Movie settings manually it might pay to start with a progressive preset ie. 720p and modify it so that you can be sure it knows you material is Progressive.

Also make sure you are on the latest patch for MEP17 as I think they added 50/60P functionality in the later patch(s).

Best

Thank you for the responses everyone. I hope that if anyone else encounters this problem this thread will help. Here is how I was able to fixe the problem on my end.

I used a free software called MPEG Streamclip to convert it to 29.97 fps. That way the file was recognized by Movie Edit Pro 17 as a valid format and I could edit it. It was more of a "band-aid" approach in that I wo9uld have liked to have used the original video source to edit but I needed to get this video edited and posted online is a short amount of time. In the future I will adjust the recording settings on my video camera to record at 30 FPS to avoid this problem iun the future.

Hi

I would not give up on shooting 60fps if your camera can do it. I have a 50fps PAL Panasonic and shoot everything at 50fps. The benefit of the extra frames for smoother camera moves and action and less motion blur are a benefit, not to mention when slowing down the action in post plus it makes for more effective post stabilization in MEP.

I am glad you solved your immediate problem but did you try any of the things suggested? I have previously used MEP17 in the 50fps format without problem. Did you try 60 instead of 59.94?

Apologies, should have been entered as new question.
