    Hi guys,
    Can anyone please recomend some settings for ingesting and cutting i phone or android footage. I am just cutting a sequence for a mate using i phone footage and am unsure of what I should set the project at or what settings to ingest.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks v much,

    Well, what is the frame rate of the footage? Typically it’s 30fps, but being iPhone, it’s a VARIABLE rate, meaning it can be 26fps, or 32fps…or 30fps. Unpredictable. You can AMA link and see what it’s being reported as. But I’d start with a 1080p29.97 project…link, and if close to 30fps, then TRANSCODE to DNxHD 145 or 175 (I think 175 is the 30fps rate, and 145 is the 23.98).
