Hi Andrew, I just figured out how to fix my problem in my previous post. I had to relink the pick whips to both "Actual Source Frame Rate" and "Target Frame Rate" to make it works again. Anyway, Thanks for the preset!

Thanks for your tutorial.

I am using After Effects CC and I am trying to convert my source footage from 60fps to 29.97fps for my project.

I followed your video and changed the numbers for "Actual Source Frame Rate" and "Target Frame Rate". However, The slider for "Speed" remains 100. Can you tell me why this happens? Thanks

Well I guess we all know that AndrewKramer_FrameRate_Converter.ffx will not work in ver. 2015.3 when I run file I receive this error.
Can't import file "AndrewKramer_FrameRate_Converter.ffx":unsupported filetype or extension. (0::1)
Does anyone know if Andrew has made an update of this file Or a work around?

Do you guys know how to convert a 1080/25 footage to 1080/30?
I mean, a way to get a smooth finish... ?

Is there any chance that I can change from 23.976 to 25? Because higher values than the original do not work.
Thank You.
Best regards,

Thanks again for this trusty dusty tutorial and FFX preset. I just dug it out again, and found that for some reason in CC2015 the math being done between "actual / desired" frame rates, grinds my system to a near halt- unusably so. By just letting it do the math, making a fresh 'timewarp' effect and plugging in the calculated number [ in my case 80.01, for converting a 23.98 file to 29.97] got around the problem. I'm nerdily fascinated that that simple expression math could bog down a system like that...

Does anyone know if this works also in premier pro> or it was just made for after effect?

Browny. You know, I ended up just doing the same methodology in Premiere instead of AE. Would be a pain if you had a tonne of clips. I was actually getting better results with CC's "Optical Flow" speed effect option than the equivalent in AE. The only difference in method is that I made a duplicate of the clip in the bin, kept its framerate intact and used its audio under the frame rate adjusted copy with speed effect.

Avdshare Video Converter will take change MP4 file frame rate as an example and it can also serve to change AVCHD, MTS, M2TS, MXF, XAVC, ProRes, MPG, AVI, FLV, MOV, WMV, MKV and almost all video format frame rates

Thank you for this awesome tutorial. I rendered my whole file and it worked perfectly, but there is no sound, is there any way to get my sound converted with the correct pitch as well? Kind Regars

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

Just press the "reset" button on top of either of those, and it should unlink. :)

Same issue. I learned NOT to hit enter, but to click out of the frame area. Then it takes it
