How to can I prepare a silent movie for making a DCP

PostSun Feb 18, 2018 9:57 pm

Resolve offers now a timeline with 18fps so I could edit and grad a DPX sequenz of an 16mm silent movie in the right speed. I rendered a ProRes File and it played nice.
Now I want to make a DCP and therefore I will need to change the framerate to 24fps.
Has anybody a suggestion (or experience) for workflow that will produce a smooth motion. I am not very glad about the normal process of doublicating every third frame.

I am glad about any help.

I use Resolve Studio 14.3.0.014 on a iMac Pro, 10core Intel Xeon 3GHz, 64GB Ram, Radeon Pro Vega 64 16 GB, High Sierra with a Pegasus3 R4 RAID

So you have the Studio Version?
You can use flow motion for the time stretching then.

Yes, I have the Studio Version.
And I think you mean the slow motion in the edit page.

This are my Project settings:
Timeline 24fps
Retime process: Optical Flow
Motion estimation: Better
Motion range: Medium

The clip is ProRes HQ with 18fps

Then I used "Change Clip Speed" to change to 24fps, Keyframes are set to "Maintain timing".

In the Inspector I changed the the Retime Process options to see the effects on the motion. Optical Flow seems to the best option.

Is there any way to get the motion even smoother than this way?

Or is there a failure in the setting I did?
