Convert before using PR. Use an external converter first. Google is your friend.
Just out of curiosity, what camera shoots video at 200 fps?
Not a camera but a screen capture program
And what is the screen subject matter that requires such a high frame rate? I ask wondering if your intention is to slow it down in playback, which is unavoidable when converting to DV's frame rate of 30 images per second.
I know this is an old thread, but I have a 200 fps video from a exercise mechanics analysis system (the kind where you put "dots" on athletes then have them execute their mechanic, video them at high-speed, and see where the inefficiencies lie) and need to import the clip on top of the PhD fellow discussing the equipment on another video line (standard frame rate 4:3 from a miniDV source). The high-speed video was supplied to me in several AVI files which play perfectly in all desktop video apps. When I import them and add them to the timeline in Premiere, they look horrible, jerky. I tried to create a new project in Premeire at 200 fps but there's no way to create that environment in the app that I can see. I was going to work my way back to an acceptable frame rate and then try exporting, but couldn't get there.
What did you end up doing to make it work?
It's been a while but I recall using the Adobe Media Encoder to export it into Encore. I did my merging in Encore.
Hope this helps.
Welcome to the forum.
Now, I have to admit that I do not have CS4.2, so things might have changed. Still, even in Desktop Mode for the Preset, 60 fps is as high as it goes. Maybe the newer programs have upped the ante.
I also checked several conversion programs that I have (freeware and shareware) and none went up to 200 fps, though I have to admit that I did not have any footage to test with at that frame rate.
Not sure what could improve things in your case, but am ready to learn.
Thanks for the feedback. After I posted I found a great little freeware app called STOIK Video Converter that did a satisfactory job of bringing the clips down to a 30 fps rate that worked fine in the video comp. Appreciate the quick replies! Cheers.
Glad that you got it handled.
Many mention Stoik, but I've not seen it myself. I use a different converter, that has worked well for me, but I have never had Assets like yours, so could not comment on how well, or poorly, it would handle such footage.
Thanks for posting, as it will likely help others.
