  • Resolve – Change project frame rate

    Posted by Ben Dejong on October 2, 2023 at 11:22 pm

    I was finished some projects in 30fps and mistakenly started a new
    project without switching to 24fps. The new project has mixed frame
    rates, but is primarily 24fps, so that is what I want it to be. I got
    many hours into this before realizing my mistake. In master settings, I
    can change the playback frame rate, but not the project frame rate.
    So, some sequences (30 fps) will playback all wonky. What is the most
    streamlined way I can get a project to work in 24fps as the setting and
    still import my sequences? I tried copy/paste using dynamic project
    switching but that automatically change the new project to 30fps again.
    Anyone have a time saving idea, or am I missing an obvious solution?

    Easiest thing is to just follow this Youtube Tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqmCBXicS4k&t=83s

    Yes, I watched this and I was able to use the last method. Just hoping I wouldn’t need to recreate all my bins, but I considering what my mistake, that’s not too big a deal.. Thanks for your reply.

    First of all, backup of your project, just in case. Just export it as a .drp file.

    In the media pool, select everything and hit Ctrl | Cmd-X (Cut). Now that your media pool is empty, you can go to project settings and change the framerate, it will be unlocked. After adjusting the project settings, go back to the media pool and hit Ctrl | Cmd-V (Paste). When asked if you want to change the project framerate, answer ‘No’. That’s it. Now your project has a different framerate.

    You can use the same method if you need to change the timeline framerate. Select all clips on the timeline, cut, change timeline settings, and paste back. Just be aware that some of the clips might have a small shift of the in-out points.

    Thanks! I pretty much did that, but I had several different time lines for different scenes so it took a little while. Playback is so much better now though!
