Is it possible to override media framerate in VP?

fifonik wrote on 12/1/2018, 11:03 PM

I have films that were scanned frame by frame and stored in mov container with frame rate 25 fps. When played it looks like fast forwarded video as original film camera frame rate was 16 fps.

I know how to extract everything in tiffs (I do not want any re-compression) and then combine back into mov or lossless avi with 16 fps so it would be played with correct speed. However, the process is slow, manual and require a lot of disk space.

Is it possible somehow to override media's frame rate that VP would think of this media as of 16 fps? When I go to media settings it shows 25 fps and the control is disabled.

Any other ideas how to do this without many manual steps would be helpful as well.

 

Thanks.

Set your project to 16 fps, right-click footage in media folder and select import at projects framerate.

This is exactly what I wanted!

In fact it is just added the media to time line and modified playback rate for the media.

I already tried to do the same manually, however was confused by zig-zag line on time line media that usually appeared when I changing speed. Thought once again and.. in fact this is exactly what I' doing here.

Thanks!

The zig-zag line just tells you that the media is not played in it's original framerate, slowed down or speeded up.

The original framerate of your recording was 16 fps (wrongly interpreted as 25 fps). To keep the original speed, both your project and your render should also be 16fps. Which will give of course not the smooth view of a 25/30 fps recording.

Sure, I do understand it now.

I tried to say that when I saw the zig-zag while playing with playback rate for the first time my thought was 'Oh, wrong way, go back'.

Sorted out, thanks again.
