Removing Speed From a Clip
by Sam Pope 10 years ago
I shot a bunch of footage a 60fps and I need to speed it up to real time, 24fps. What is the best way to do this and maintain quality Thanks
Re: Removing Speed From a Clip
by Sam Pope 10 years ago
Progressive. I know that I could just do the math and slow down the clip the appropriate percentage to get it to real time. But I know there's also got to be a way to remove frames.

Better to compress a reference file?
by Sam Pope 10 years ago
I've been told a few times that it's better to export a reference file out of FCP, dag it into Compressor and compress that. Any truth to this sam
