When combining footage that has different frame rates, how is this typically handled?
Specifically, when editing 1080p/30 + 1080p/60.
- Would the overall footage be dropped to 30 fps, or can a particular video have multiple frame rates?
- What are the best practices in this scenario?
Full disclosure: I am brand new to video and Premiere Pro, and am considering purchasing a camera that shoots at 1080p/60, while I may occasionally want to introduce a clip which was shot on a point-n-shoot that records at 1080p/30. Basically, I'm trying to understand if I will loose the benefits of 1080p/60 if combining with 1080p/30.
Any insight is appreciated.
The only thing you lose is 60p. Not during editing, but on export, because 1080/60p is a non-standard format not supported on BRD. You have to revert to 30p for export, so you can better shoot in 30p, but you can combine both framerates in a single timeline, if you want.
