Join Frank Rohmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Converting non-drop to drop frames, part of Photography Video Workflow: Final Cut Pro + Canon 5D Mark II.
Because the Canon 5D Mark II records the video in a Non Drop file format, I've…had a lot of people ask and I have even seen a few blogs regarding how can they…get around this? How can they take the Non Drop file format and change it to a…Drop-frame for broadcast reasons?…Well, believe it or not, you can do it with ease in Final Cut Pro. It's just a…matter of setting up a Preset within Final Cut Pro to handle this seamlessly…without affecting the video whatsoever.…Now, this is very similar to creating a new project that we did in a earlier…lesson with a couple of different keystrokes. So let's jump right into it.…
First things first, I would like you to close any opened project within Final Cut Pro.…The way to do that is to navigate up to the left-hand corner and Ctrl+Click on…any Project Tab. Don't close the Effects Tab, just close the Project Tab. So…Ctrl+Click and select Close Tab. I want you to close all projects until you see…three things, the Browser, the Viewer, and the Desktop.…Once you have done that, I'd like you to navigate back up to the word Final Cut Pro…
