What you want to do is possible; I just don't know if it can be done in Premiere Pro. Hopefully someone will weigh in who's done it. In Vegas it's very easy -- just drop the 30p clip into a 24p timeline, right-click it and select "playback rate: 0.80" (for 80% speed). Then you get frame-accurate fillm-style slow motion, and it delivers a quite nice slow-mo effect.

Dropping your 30p clip into 24p timeline will not automatically slow it down (which is what I meant by "Premiere will not affect any speed changes"). I should have added the word "automatically". That's what you implied in your question.

Like Barry suggests, to get good slo-mo, shoot that material in 30p and slow it down to 80%. Any version of Premiere can do slo-mo easily. In this case 80% is the magic number for the highest quality from 30p footage. Of course, you could select any other percentage but it won't be as smooth. It may or may not require rendering. BTW, non-realtime previews in Premiere are low res, so don't be alarmed. Once it's rendered, WYSIWYG.

Oh, and I'll plug Barry's book while I'm at it! Worthwhile purchase if you haven't already done so.

I wouldnt consider droping speed of a clip in premiere...its horrible its uses tons of frame blending and just looks bad...but yea 80% is the number I guess

Help with 24P please

Hi all,

I have a Panasonic DVX-100A and would have posted this question on that forum but there doesn't seem to be alot of activity there. So thought I would throw this out to all of you brainiacs and see if someone could help.

I have a director that wants to shoot in 24p for a youth Diabetes walk tomorrow. Having never used 24p, I tried to dissuade her because of the smearing problem I have read about on this site, but in reality I was trying to get her to change her mind because of my lack of experience with this format. Uh-oh.....

That confession made, I now need to know anything and everything you men and women are willing to take the time to share. I'm sure I can set the menu to record in 24p but are there any other recording issues I should be aware of? How to control the smearing on pans? Do I need to try and hold hand-held shots even more steadily because of the flutter? Please alert me to everything I might not know, which is embarrassingly, everything. Sorry for the huge request. My bad for not researching this earlier, but I just found out about this 24p assignment today.....

THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE,

Steph

After that, there's not much else to say - it's that good.

Good luck.

Really, it's not a big bear....you can shoot pretty loosely with 24p and not have any glaringly obvious defects in your footage, even the panning smear. Handheld is no different. I mean, the "smear" or rather "studder" is there while panning sort of slowly, but not slow enough for a real smooth image, but these are subtle things, nothing that would "ruin" your footage. It's just a compromise that must be taken into consideration for certain types of shots...for instance if you were panning across a landscape. You should keep in mind that the movie Murderball, about quadroplegic wheelchair sports, was shot with the DVX using 24p, and a lot of the footage was from cameras strapped to the very much in motion wheel chair athletes themselves. To sum it up, it is my opinion (one informed by having shot hundreds of hours of DVX 24p footage) that you really don't have anything to worry about in this regard for the type of footage it seems you'll be shooting. But you will want to spend some time getting to know the camera (no matter what you shoot with) before showtime. You'll simply have to have a feel for it, knowing things like how to operate the iris/focus/neutral density filters/white balance. Dont worry too much about the menu settings, you can just use scene file 6 with all parameters set at default values and get amazing 24p footage, assuming your compositions are good.

i shot in scene dial f5 on the dvx, white balanced for each shoot.
some of the shots i shot with diff shutter speeds etc... but majority were on stock settings.

the interviews were shot with two kino flows 500watt and umbrellas, didnt have the softboxes. One of the interviews only used a back light


captured on pro 1.0 and imported to 1.5 due to the fact that i had both 60i footage and 24p and 1.5 doesnt like em both(but thats another story)

did some cc in AE and premiere
right now i'm mixing sound in pro 1.5
and its turning out well
