Importing 240 FPS clips come in at 29.97.

PostTue Sep 12, 2017 5:48 pm

Hi All, I'm a newb to DR. I'm importing RAW DNG 240 FPS clips from my Odyssey 7Q. It's seeing the sequences fine in the media browser but metadata is reading it as 29.97 and playing it back as such in the timeline. Is it just a matter of retiming it in the edit suite? Any help with high frame rate DNG workflow would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Cheers

Probably your Odyssey was set to that project frame rate.
No problem, though, just change the speed under "Clip Attributes".

Thanks Uli but I must be missing something. Odyssey sees the frame rate output by the camera and displays it in the top left corner of the recorder so it clearly knows the correct frame rate. It imports correctly in other software just not in DR. In DR, "Attributes" allows me to "custom" change frames rates as high as 120 FPS but not 240. Even with a frame rate change in Attributes and metadata showing 120 FPS it comes into the 24 fps timeline in real time @ 100% and needs retiming to 25% to play back in slow-mo.
Am I doing this RAW high frame rate import correctly? I just bought in some Quicktime files shot in Pro-Res. Up to 60FPS is fine, meta data/attributes are correct anything more then 60 FPS comes in as 29.97. Even the 60 fps .mov files are coming into the timeline in real time and are showing 100% on frame rate, they have to be retimed to play back in slo-mo. Now maybe retiming is the correct workflow I'm just wanting to make sure I'm getting the most out of my high frame rates.
Thanks!

The last Odyssey I used was years ago. So, just a few questions:

– You are recording RAW from the camera, right?
– Which format is that recording? DNG sequences or what else?
– Where and how are you converting into ProRes?
