I'm working with Luma since two weeks (also FCPX since 9 year). I have bought a new GoPro7 and recording everything in 2.7K 60FPS.
When I setup a new project I have choose between difference frame rates. I have read a lot about framerates but what is the best way to go?
60 or 24 fps? And why should I do that? I have use a ND filter on my GoPro so I could play with shutter time.

Please I have to learn from al of you, thanks!!

Hi ceescoenen

This is a debate that could go on forever :D

The ‘best’ one is the one that you choose to use. Some will argue (reasonably) that 24fps gives a more cinematic effect. You could equally argue that 60fps will give you sharper frames due to the higher shutter speed

The best advice I can give from my experience is to keep an exact multiple of what you start with

60/30 60/20 60/15 divides exactly with no remainder

60/24 = 2.5 and that means that at some point a frame is going to have to be added or dropped which can result in what I call ‘jerkyvision’

I was shooting my drone footage in 30 FPS and outputting it at 24 FPS and it took me ages to work out why cars seemed to ‘skip’ along the roads

That’s just my personal experience and hopefully others will chip in with advice for you. I’m not a professional editor or anything

.. Good things come to those who wait
