I would like some advice on mixing 30fps footage with 24fps footage. Or, shooting all in 30p, but I would want the final video in 24p without any quality loss.
I have two shoot days for a short video I am making. The first day I shot an entire interview and tons of broll in 30fps. I have another day of shooting and was wondering what my best option would be: Either to keep shooting the rest in 30p and then putting all 30p footage on a 24p timeline? Or, finish my next shoot day with 24p (having both 30p and 24p footage) and then putting the mix footage on a 24 timeline? Or, is there too much quality now that will be lost, if I take 30p to 24p?
Suggestions? My ultimate goal is to have a cinematic look and feel.
This will be my first project in premiere.
In my experience, Adobe tools just aren't very good at converting higher frame rates down to 24p, so you should only edit and export at 24p when ALL the footage either is, or will be Interpreted as, 24p. If you have ANY clips at higher frame rates, edit and export at 30i or 60p as appropriate.
30p is a non-standard invented by camera makers and should never be used for anything.
