    Basic question about shutter speed vs frame rate in Premiere (shooting 60fps vs slowing to 24fps in post)

      Hi everyone, I have what I'm sure is a simple question but I just haven't been able to find the answer elsewhere.

       

      I have been reading that when filming, a good practice is to try to set the shutter speed value at twice the frame rate to get the most natural-looking footage. I know there are lots of situations where you should not follow this rule, but let's just assume I want to stick to this approach at the moment.

       

      My question is: how does this work when you're filming in a higher FPS with the intention of slowing that footage down later in post?

       

      For example, I currently do a lot of shooting in 60fps on both my drone and my GoPro because I really like being able to slow 60fps down to 24fps for a bit of slow motion. But when I do this, should I be trying to set my shutter speed to 1/120 because I'm shooting at 60fps, or should I be trying to set my shutter speed to 1/50-1/60 if I know I'm going to slow it down to 24fps in Premiere later?
