Most efficient way of changing still image frame rates?

May 4, 2012 8:07 AM

I'm using Premiere CS5.5 and have been having issues with the audio/video going out of sync when I upload my video to Vimeo (it's not out of sync prior to uploading it...it only happens after they transcode it). The Vimeo support staff says the problem is that I'm using a variable frame rate, but since there isn't any option (to my knowledge) to choose a constant or variable framerate in Premiere/Adobe Media Encoder, I think I have identified the problem. The primary footage that I shot with is 23.976 fps and that is what my sequence settings and output settings have been, but I also have a lot of still images that I'm using for b-roll, which I finally noticed are 29.97 fps. I changed the Intermediate Media Timebase setting to 23.976 fps in the preferences, but my question now is if there is an efficient way to change the frame rate of all those still images without having to re-import them and re-apply all the various motion effects/key framing that I've already spent a lot of time on?

 

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Still images do not have a framerate.

    Could you make a screendump

    That's not really possible.  Export can only be at one frame rate.  Are you sure they didn't mean variable bitrate, as in VBR?

    "I just took a look at that video's meta data and it appears that it still has a variable frame rate"

     

    I'm very suspicious of that statement.  Can you upload the original file to a file sharing site, the same original one you uploaded to Vimeo, so we can look at it?

    That allows me to see the Vimeo converted video.  I see no way to download the original, unconverted video.

    Doesn't seem to work for me though.  It just says "Loading..." and stays there.

    I cannot download the file either.

    So something is not right

    Did you use the Vimeo preset?

    Here's the Gspot and PP details.  All looks fine.  (I've seen MediaInfo goof on frame rates before, so I persoanlly don't trust it.)

    Methinks the Vimeo folks don't know what they're talking about.

    compressed through Premiere/AME

     

    According to both Gspot and VLC, this file was compressed using Handbrake.

     

    Have you tried an upload coming from AME yet?

    Well..this is one reason I personally don't use web video services like Vimeo and YouTube.  I'd rather upload the videos directly to my own site.
