I have set up a project in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. I have various source clips at two different frame rates, 29.97 and 59.94.
Using various methods (i.e. "new sequence from clip", new sequence and then entering settings, etc.) I have set up sequences for the source clips based on their respective frame rates (i.e. if the source FPS is 59.94, then the sequence is set to use the clip's frame rate).
I need to eventually play the 59.94FPS clips in a 29.97FPS sequence.
The clips all play back and edit smoothly (i.e. without lag or stutter) in their respective clips.
However, from everything I've read, dropping a 59.94FPS clip into a 29.97FPS sequence should cause the duration of the 59.94FPS clip to double and play at half of its original speed. However, this does not happen.
Instead, what happens is that the 59.94FPS clip plays at the same speed as its source, but with a lot of stutter.
I have tried to double the duration of the 59.94FPS clip in its original sequence before moving it to the 29.97 sequence, but the result is the same. I have tried to double the duration of the 59.97FPS clip after moving it to the 29.97 sequence, but the result is the same. I have also tried using Interpret Footage and setting it to 59.94 even though the FPS was correctly being read from the source clip.
I have run out of ideas and have no idea what the proper method is to get a higher FPS clip to play at a slower speed when put into a lower FPS sequence.
Your help would be most appreciated. Thanks.
