Hi, When I try to convert from 30 to 24, I interpret the footage @ 24, drag it into a new comp, add the preset and it defaults to an Actual of 23.97 and a target of 30 (which is obviously the OPPOSITE of what I want. So I go to set the Actual to 30 (which it is) and when I enter it, the target also changes to 30!! :( So I set the Target to 24 and.... it changes the Actual to 24!!! They've become linked somehow, and if i set either, it changes both the Actual and Target to the same number. What am I doing wrong here?? cheers

This does not work for me. I followed what was shown in the tutorial (tried a 24p to 30p) and it actually made it go at 1fps to 3.xxxfps a second using this.

Am I doing something wrong or is this not compatible with CS5.5

Hey i tried to convert a video which is about six minutes long, to 29.97 to 23.976 but once i did that, It all took forever to render but when i try to scrub it, it'll take another long time to render. Any way to fix this.

This tutorial is great(it actually saved my live ^_^), but I have one question...

I have to convert my movie, recorded in 20fps, to 24fps. And becouse, this is an actual film, not just one scene, there are obviously cuts between the scenes.

So is the "pixel motion" method good in this case? I mean, how will AE create inbetween frame, from two frames, that have nothing to do with one another?

Is there any way for you to cut the movie and convert the frame rate in individual scenes? i.e. cut it and export each scene in FCP and import them into AE, then converting the frame rate of each one?

Please follow these guidelines:
1 - When you import any video file format to any project list click the right mouse button on the file. (on THE LIST)
2 - After pressing the right mouse button on the file will show you the list, select the ones Interpret Footage. Waiting for the other menu and choose the option Main. You can Briefly press the button Ctrl F to summarize the previous steps, but all of this to consolidate the information .
3 - In the window that appeared Number shows the number of frames per second. You can change this number to get the number of frames appropriate for your system.

Good luck

You probably won't believe it, but I just impressed a lady by my ability of frame converting, so.. obviously it has bigger potential than you thought... :)

Anyway, thanks for useful tool ;)

Been trying to convert a PAL concert from a friend into NTSC and was wondering if anyone had any tips. After Effects would probably be too much since the concert is two hours but really am having trouble finding a good method... any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Under composition settings how do you change from time code to frames and back again.

Hi Andrew,

first of all: Thx so much for all these grate tutorials you share with us. We would order more of your DVD´s if they would translate into german.
But now I´ve a question.
We are filming with our Canon EOS 5D Mark II and we would like to transfer 30p into 25p.
Is there any update for this tutorial so we can use it for AE CS4 ?!

Cheers again,

Boris

I had to use this method on a 4 minute clip. It has been rendering for 4.5 hours and still has 90 minutes to go. Is this normal? There's not much motion so I used the "whole frames" method. Figured that was fastest. The blended frames method was rendering all night and still had 6 hours to go when I came in this morning. Thoughts?

Just watched your clip on FPS conversion. It mentioned that the presets were available for download, but I can't find them. Where might they be??

I am trying to take a 1080i 59.94 flip and convert it to 50hz. Unfortunately when i drop it down i get audio sync issues and am madly trying to figure out a viable work around. Your expertise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much

this seems to work fine for me.

Can't recommend using it on >2 mins worth of footage though...it's taken over 8 hrs to render and is still going.

Thanks Once Again Superstar. You saved my life again.

Was looking to use a 25p comp in a 30p comp without stuttering.

So if you just want to use the EXACT frames of footage OR A COMPOSITION you can use the same formula ( source rate/new rate*100) and apply the percentage to the TIME STRETCH.

Be better if After Effects let you do this more easily.

nb rotoing 25p footage for a 30p comp. Apparently really hard to shoot 30p in Uk as lights flicker due to 50hz/60hz voltage differences...

Hi Andrew.
First... awesome job you are doing. I'm getting into AE thanks to you!
I have a problem with this tutorial though. It might be my problem, but I wanted to know if there are more people with this experience.
When I use your template to turn PAL footage into NTSC footage, it starts very well, but after 200 frames into the composition, things really slow down. Up to 5-8 seconds per frame.
Now I'm rendering a trailer which is about 1,5 minutes long, but it will take up to 8 hrs.
I tried different types of footage, but still the problem persists.
Now I tried just scaling and setting the interpret footage to NTSC and only use the timewarp... so not the slider "original" and "target" expressions... and voila... ten time faster.
So I'm not sure what that expression is doing, but it seems at my end that it slows things realy down, and all you have to do is do some math in the warp fields...

I thought I let you know.

Greetings. Stephan

Great tutorial! I always learn so much from your site.

Question - the frame rate preset you have for download is not compatible with AE 6.5 because it was created in 7.0.

Any chance of getting one that works with 6.5?

Thanks!
