FREYA has us up early.
After breakfast Margaret takes Freya swimming and I get busy with some of the video from New Year’s Day.
The cameras were recording at different frame rates and I finally get my head round the fact that the audio pitch mismatch is not anything to do with audio sample rates, it’s the frame rate that’s causing the issue when the video clips are pulled onto a project timeline.
The workaround is simple if a little time consuming – covert the video from one of the sources outwith the Final Cut timeline. I use Compressor to convert the GoPro footage from 23.98fps to the 25fps frame rate of the master video from the main camera. It works!
Will comes to pick up Freya at 5pm then Maragret and I have a coffee and chill for a wee while. Then I finish up a couple of tracks from David and Fiona’s set and stick them on Dropbox for them to grab.
There’s still a load of cold ham in the fridge. In a bid to have something different for dinner I rustle up a ham fried rice which works out really good 🙂
