Hey all,

I know a guy who shoots his videos in 60fps. He says he uses them to edit in a 24fps timeline as he occasionally uses slow motion. I’ve seen him edit before and the footage in the timeline looks 24fps but when I’m home and drag a 60fps clip in a 24fps timeline it looks slow motioned always.

Is there something I’m missing? Is there a simple way to edit 60fps clips in a 24fps timeline where it doesn’t look slow motioned? Can I have it always look 24fps without it being slow motioned?

I don’t recall him changing speed/duration on each clip or doing anything to each clip.

Thanks in advance!

I have the same doubt.

What editing software are you using?
I use Vegas Pro, drop anything on my timeline and it plays as expected.
If it's a 24fps timeline and I drop 60fps footage on it, it doesn't slow down until I make it slow down.
