    Importing a 59 fps framerate into a 23.997 Project

    Hello, I am intending to bring in 1920x1080p 59.940 fps clips into my 23.976 project. I intend to use the footage at both 23.976 for slow motion effects as well as selectively playing some of the footage at 59.940.

    When I select the file and attempt to transcode at its original fps (59.940) It only gives me the option of encoding with the DNxHR codecs. Again, the footage is 1920 x 1080p. I have encoded it anyway as a test and playback is choppy at normal speed. It runs fine at 23.976. It looks like the file is too large as well.

    I can batch convert the whole lot to DNx290 with adobe media encoder but I want to make sure I am doing the ideal thing here. Anyone know?

    Thanks for your time.

    You're doing it right.  DNxHR is indeed the only thing available when keeping same-as-source framerate.  The thing is, 59.94p doesn't convert very well to 23.976, which is causing the choppy playback you see.

    The good thing about keeping the source's framerate is that you can change the motion effect that's on the clip, until you get a playback result that you like.  Often, the default is "both fields," which often looks choppy.  I prefer options like "blended interpolated" or "VTR style."

    No need to go to Adobe Media Encoder here.
