  • 50p & 23,98p

    Hello everyone.,
    quick question.....
    Unfortunatelly I just got footage from a wedding. 2 cameras, 50p and the second 23,98p.
    Whats the best way to convert the footage in order to sync it with Pluraleyes?
    Finally, I suppose the project settings must be 23,98p?
    Thank you

    yes but what about synchronizing them?

      OK. But in order to export AAF for Pluraleyes, both cameras must have same fps. So do I have to convert 50p to 25p, then import the converted files to Edius and then export to AAF? Remember I wrote that its a 2 camera wedding? I NEED to sync them, because otherwise sync them manually it will take ages.
      Is there any other way, desides Pluraleyes, that I can sync them?

        I would say you are "up [enter name] creek without a paddle".
        If you change the speed the audio will be faster and so it will NEVER sync***, not even in Quadruple Eyes or anywhere else for that matter.
        You are going to have to use the 23.97 as is and Manually sync from the waveform. If it takes "ages" which I dont see why if the cameras are running together, better still if they have locked TC and if they dont, then put it down to experience...work all night and hopefully it will never happen again.
        ***For Clarification with another source. It will be "in sync" with its own pictures.

          Without a paddle for sure.....:-)
          If they have locked TC? They dont even know what fps to use and they will have locked TC? I think they just know how to press Rec & Stop. And that I;am not sure of !!!
          Anyway....so manually it is...... Coffee....a lot of coffee, and I will let you know when I will finish synchronizing...it will takes ages ............
          Thanks for your ideas!!!!

            You could try something I have just used on a similar set up using Resolve. Get the free version of Resolve 12.5.6.
            1. Start a project.
            2. Make sure that the project is set to the frame rate of the project you are going to use in EDIUS - i.e. if making a 50P EDIUS project make a 50P Resolve project.
            3. Save the Resolve project.
            4. Import your clips. When you do this Resolve might say it wants to change the frame rate of the project. Don't let it.
            5. Select the clips in the bin and create a new multicamera project based on the audio.
            6. Look at the multicamera timeline and see if things are synced.
            7. Create a new timeline and copy the clips from the multicamera timeline to the new one. I am not sure if this is essential but I found that if you try and tidy up the Resolve multicamera timeline it sometimes deletes stuff you don't want it to.
            8. Now export an XML file - not an FCP XML, just an XML.
            9. Start EDIUS and import it and hopefully it works.


            EDIUS won't export AAFs with mixed frame rates but it does import XMLs with mixed frame rate clips. This will fail if the original frame rate of the XML - which comes from the Resolve project - does not match the EDIUS project frame rate.

            I have used this a couple of times and it worked for me. It may or may not work for you - I would be interested to see what happens.

            This will all fail horribly, of course, if Resolve won't load your clips. In my case I was using a mix of 24P and 50P Gh5 clips with separate audio recording and it all synced nicely.

              David, what is the advantage in going into Resolve? Why not just manually sync and multicam in Edius?

                Resolve can sync on the sound like PluralEyes. I have never used PluralEyes myself but I am willing to bet it does a better job than Resolve on hard-to-sync clips. My recent project was on a couple of songs and it managed to sync those.

                Since it is in the free version of Resolve I thought it was worth a try rather than manually syncing.

                  Understood.
                  We just did a shoot today that included a two camera interview so at some point I will try that. Incidentally, I tried Beta 14 and it refused to start so I am back to 12.5.6.

                    It was 12.5.6 I used as I have had problems with the beta as well.
