FPS Conversion NTSC

Started this discussion. Last reply by Daniel Wernëck 16 hours ago. 6 Replies

Hi! So I have a project where I want to combine live action video with animation. My source video footage is 30fps (29.97 NTSC). I want to insert my own animation (24fps) into the clip. Should I…Continue

Saw this on YouTube and it looks really professional. The only thing I would improve upon is the counterweight pulley and rope system. It looks very delicate in the video. Check it out . . .…Continue

Nikon 50mm vs 55mm Manual Lens

Started this discussion. Last reply by Eric Scott Apr 2. 2 Replies

I know the 55mm is recommended but I got a really good deal on a 50mm f1.8D instead. Are there any major differences between the two? Focus distance starts at about 1.5 feet. It's super sharp and so…Continue

"Oh and just reinforcing what Iulian and Nick said: converting is always dangerous. I do believe if you convert DOWN from 30 to 24 you will be more likely to have a nice-looking video in the end. The opposite is usually problematic. And yes, the…"

"In my experience, broken numbers for frame rates (i.e. 29.97 instead of 30, 23.97 instead of 24) are prone to disaster. Had lots of trouble because of them when I worked with video editing. I avoid them like the plague. I see no reason why you…"

"HI, Stick to the 30 FPS. Converting to PAL is a nightmare and does not work without loosing or making all go south. The professional converters have trouble doing it even now. If you can reshot the scenes the do them in PAL directly and then you can…"

"If you are mixing with live action, I think the very best plan would be to animate at the same rate - a full 30 fps on ones - so the two blend together as well as possible.  (Not the quickest or easiest, mind you.) Otherwise, shooting on twos…"

"Hi, i am using this one ebay airbrush comrpressor 1.6 hp which is pretty much the first one nick mentioned in his post. It is reasonably silent and works perfectly with a paache. However if you need to spray larger areas then you should go fir a…"

"SilentAir do make models with smaller tanks, like 1.5 gallons (6 litres), but the price doesn't seem to get any smaller.  And that  6 litre one, with the tank to one side of the compressor, takes up more floor space than the 4…"

Eric Scott replied to Eric Scott's discussion Airbrush Compressor Recommendation
"I've been doing some research on the two options you mentioned. The Sil-Air above is probably the best bet but still a bit large for my apartment (I only have 400 square feet) and it's quite a bit above my budget. Perhaps a 1 or 2 gallon…"

"Thanks for the advice. I was leaning in that direction anyway. It's only a few more frames to animate if shooting on two's. "

Ethan Bartholomae replied to Eric Scott's discussion FPS Conversion NTSC
"That much back and forth conversion leaves a lot to be desired. Your best bet, depending on the pacing of your animated sequence, would be to stick with 30fps but animate on 2's."

FPS Conversion NTSC

Hi! So I have a project where I want to combine live action video with animation. My source video footage is 30fps (29.97 NTSC). I want to insert my own animation (24fps) into the clip. Should I convert the 30fps to 24fps, insert animation and render back out to 30fps for final output? Or should I animate at 30fps instead of 24fps to match the source video? I expect there to be some drawbacks to converting 24fps animation to 30fps . . .Additionally, animating at 30fps sounds rather challenging…See More

"This looks much the same as my old Whisp-Aire, with the same dome cover and fridge motor and compressor.  Also priced at US $869 which is also similar I'm afraid.  http://artsupplysource.com/silentaire-sil-air-50-15-air-compressor/"

"I have something similar to this (Different brand name but looks like this) -oil-free,  with a small tank, cost $99, that works well with a Paasche H.  No need for anything bigger.  The drawback is that it is very noisy, like a…"

StopmoNick replied to Eric Scott's discussion Nikon 50mm vs 55mm Manual Lens
"The difference between 50mm and 55mm is nothing.  Both are good.  The main reason for getting the Nikon 55mm Micro is that it is a macro, it can focus much closer than a standard lens.  That's good for when you want a…"
