I shot some footage on a Sony a7s at 59.94 fps so that I could slow it down in post to achieve a smoother camera movement. But when I interpret it to 23.976 fps in Premiere, it looks like it's dropping frames. It looks super glichy and terrible. When I scrub through the interpreted clip frame by frame, it looks like it has duplicated every frame. Each frame is held for the length of two frames. What can I do to slow the footage down so that it looks smooth?
I am especially confused because I've used this technique in the past with footage shot on a Canon Mark III and footage recorded through a Shogun. When I interpret that footage to 23.976, it looks perfectly smooth.
Things I have tried with the Sony footage, none of which worked:
- Interpreting to 23.976
- Dragging 59.94 clip to 23.976 sequence and slowing it down to 50%
- Frame blending
- Opening the clip in After Effects and interpreting to 23.976
- Selecting "Pixel Motion Blur" on the interpreted AE clip
I am using Premiere Pro CC 2015. Any help would be much appreciated.
