Changing Frame Rate without changing total runtime
I’ve been asked to transcode a series of 22′ episodes from 29.97 to 25fps for international distribution, with the stipulation that runtime needs to stay the same.
My understanding is this isn’t possible using Premiere without introducing stutter, as 20% of the information will be lost (since 1 frame out of every 5 will be missing). This will cause the videos to fail any decent QC pass.
So, do you have any suggestions? Is this something Twixtor could do? I’ve also heard a little about Alchemist? Or would I need to invest in some niche hardware to handle this?
