1080p to 720p exports as still frames

Just upgraded to 10.2, and shot some 1080p30 XDCAM 422HD, tried to export as my standard 720p60 timeline. Everything comes out as a series of still frames with audio. If I export as 1080p30, it works fine. I've never had a problem before exporting 720p60 from 1080 clips. Is there a new option/setting in 10.2 that defaulted to something that is causing this?

Thanks!

Paul

Re: 1080p to 720p exports as still frames

So, the problem appears to be that I cannot export a frame-rate (timeline) that is different from the media frame-rate. The media MUST match the timeline frame-rate, or all I get is STILL FRAMES with audio.

I am about to upgrade my PXW-X70 to 4Kp30, but my export format is always 720p60 timeline, so I am screwed. Anyone have any ideas where to begin looking in the settings for something that could cause this? I would like to shoot 1080p30 and 4Kp30, but if they can't be exported on a 60p timeline, I can't go with that.

Are you saying that this happens with all media that is different on only 720p60 timelines or with all different format timelines on your system? Have you sent a bug report to Apple? They sometimes will contact you directly, happened to me when I reported a bug a few years ago.

I mix formats all the time on 1080p timelines and 480i timelines and never have this problem. I am about to do an edit to a 720p24 timeline, it has worked before, we'll see what happens.

Not just 720. The media FPS must match the time-line FPS, or those clips will export as stills.

Something is very wrong. FCPX does an excellent job of conforming different formats to the timeline and exporting movie files. You might have to re-install FCPX. Have you done all the other updates?

It's fully up to date, and additionally, I have tested this with (ingest/export) XAVC, AVCHD, h264, ProRes etc, issue is not codec related.
