    List of dropped frames

    Trevor_Asq Level 4

      I have an XDCam originated file that has at some stage been transcoded/rendered to a ProRes file.

       

      This file has baked in dropped frames that cause it to stutter. Premiere reports the dropped frames on import.

       

      Is there a way, using CC or other apps, of getting the list of dropped frames to show as markers on the clip? Or even just a printout against timecode?

       

      Thanks

          I think the trouble you might have is if the 'dropped frames' are baked in, to a machine they look like normal video but with a jump cut. I know some programs have an algorithm that will detect scene changes, I'm not sure they will detect just a frame missing.

            Maybe rather than baked in the frames are the wrong length in the prores file...

            Video:

            This movie appears to have DROPPED FRAMES.

            There are 67994 frames with a duration of 1/25th.

            There are 632 frames with a duration of 2/25ths.

            There are 512 frames with a duration of 3/25ths.

            There are 347 frames with a duration of 4/25ths.

            There are 119 frames with a duration of 1/5th.

            There are 23 frames with a duration of 6/25ths.

            There is 1 frame with a duration of 7/25ths.

             

            I'd like to know where those frames are so I can make them 1/25 and replace the rest with black

              Solution...

               

              http://aescripts.com/duplicate-frame-remover/

              works a treat... remove the duplicate frames (some kind of difference algorithm) in AE & export for Avid.

              now to edit around the stutter...
