I know that CS5 can handle 60p from the GoPro HD camera without problems, but my question is what happens if I try to put footage from this camera in a 25p timeline? Thinking of using a GoPro HD camera as a crashcam, shooting in 60p for slo-mo. Is it feasible to put this footage into a 25p timeline without major problems?
Thanks for any input!
Sure thing. However, if you want it slo-mo, you'll have to interpret the footage as 25fps (or whatever your desired frame rate is); you have to tell Premiere how many frames you want to playback in a given amount of time (i.e. one second). If you don't interpret the footage, Premiere will simply drop and/or interpolate frames as necessary to match the 60 frames per second of the source footage to the 25 frames per second of the destination sequence.
When imported, right-click your clip and select Modify > Interpret Footage; you'll want to select the "Assume this frame rate" option and enter your desired frame rate.
Ah, it's as easy as interpreting the footage.
Excellent, thank you for the quick answer!
