Turn on Frame Controls and try Reverse Telecine (in the De-interlace box) on a test clip. Dependig on how they got to 30 (29.97?), it might get rid of the extra frame.
BTW, how much do you want to slow this down?
Compressor can do slo–mo (also in Frame Controls), but FCP (and Motion(does a pretty good job, depending on the content, and gives several options.
Thanks. I'll try that.
Generally, I want to slow them down to 1/4 speed. Depends on the clip, though.
Yes, I've been experimenting with the differences between doing it in FCP and Compressor. Sometimes FCP is fine, sometimes I need to use Compessor. I'm sure I'll learn as I go on.
Thanks for the help. I'll report back on whether this solves the issue or not.
The Reverse Telecine didn't remove the extra frames. Who knows - maybe the frames aren't exact duplicates, although for the most part, they look it to the naked eye, which I realize doesn't mean much.
Oh well, doing it by hand isn't the end of the world. I've probably spent more time trying to figure out an automatic method, than it would have taken to do it by hand. But of course, I'm sure I'm not the only one who's ever done that...
Thanks for trying. As I've been searching for help on other things, it's amazing how many times one of your posts helps. So you've helped me plenty, for which I thank you.
