I'm trying to learn how to get a slow-motion effect with material that has been shot in 60p (59.94fps).
I imported that material (AVCHD-codec) into Premiere Pro CS 5.5 and created a new sequence with 25 fps. Still, the material is in normal speed in playback. no slow motion...
Can anyone tell me whether I missed out on something really simple :-) ? Or is the whole thing more complicated than I thought?
Any help welcome,
Ok, it's weird to answer my own post, yet I learned how to do it and in case someone else is just starting up, it might be helpful:
import the 60p footage into premiere, rightclick onto it in your footage-list and got to modify > interpret footage. there you can enter your desired framerate (in my case 25fps) and click "ok". then right click on the footage again and choose "new sequence from clip" and now you have a 25fps-sequence with true slow motion footage.
