    Project settings won't allow you to change the frame rate of a project, only start a new one, is there a way around this?

    or is there a way to export and import the sequence?
    Sky, please take this as constructive criticism as this suggestion is designed to help you.

    Judging by the constant stream of threads that you make which clearly show an obvious lack of understanding of the fundamentals of both Edius and video product. You really do need to pay someone to give you 1 on 1 training.

    If you were someone new to Edius and video production then some of your questions may be understandable. But lets face it, you're not new to either and you are constantly posting questions that prove you've got difficulties in understanding the basics.

    Also. You are working commercially and being payed. In that case, and in my opinion, you really should be paying for training and not using the forum in such a way that it appears like it's free technical support.

    As for your present predicament. I'd say that Jerry was being very generous in his assessment of you screwing the pooch. I'd suggest that you've screwed you client.

    There is only one way to correct this and Jerry has already said it. Go back and re-edit the job and do it properly. Or you could always pay for a session on Alchemy.

    If indeed you are Trying To Learn, as your user name is saying. Then I think you're gonna get a great opportunity to do some seriously learning with this current problem you've created for yourself.

    Framerate is a project stetting that can't be changed once set and has been like this as far back as I can remember, even back before I was personally using Edius but was selling it.

    This has been discussed many times on the forum. A quick forum search for something like "change project framerate" would have revealed this to you without having to ask a question and waiting for an answer.

    The way I have to phrase this is you 'screwed the pooch.'
    This is a noobie error. Once you set the frame rate for a project, you can't change it.
    Pre-planning makes all the difference.

    You can export your 23.98 clip and import it into a 29.97 project and export from there, but the final product is going to suffer.

    If I'm the client and I receive a product like this, I would hold your feet to the fire to fix it.

    If the files are 29.97, in order to deliver a good product you should re-edit the project. The learning experience will cause you to pause and think about what you need to do next time.

    The 23.98 project, were the files actually shot in 23.98 or 29.97?
