Hey guys thanks for all your help.
I am working with several different producers and film makers all over the country and as you can imagine I do receive many different frame rates. My question yesterday was about a frame rate that I had never seen? FPS:7.45 and 5.33? I did speak with the producer in question and he shoots 1080P24, and his sequence in final cut is:
XDCAMEX1080P24, before he sends me a clip to work on he does export it in final cut to the iphone conversion and that is where the strange FPS:7.45?????? comes from. The FPS, for the real .mov is 23.98. When I work on his projects they do seem to be in sync, but it was not until a watched Steveâ€™s new video on film music and sound that I noticed this FPS??? problem. Well, what would you guys recommend me to do? Tell the producer to send me a bigger file with normal FPS? or just keep working with the files he send me and pretend that I donâ€™t know any better??
thanks for all the great work you all do at macProVideo and I am always recommending your site!
by the way,... here is the e-mail that the producer sent me to explain how he is getting those FSP: numbers.
does this seem logical!
Final Cut. Export / Quik Time Conversion / IPOD
This is not the same thing as .mov file.
The info file you sent me was of an m4v MPEG 4 file.
Make sure that is clear. Apple does a trick with intraframe compression- which is assume is why the frame rate shows as 1/3 the rate yet looks in sync. It is in sync just less frames per second are used. They are blended to appear full frame. That is what MPEG compressions do.Â
The original is always 1080P24. That is what the camera shoots always.
