Dick the Flick Posted November 29, 2012 Share Posted November 29, 2012 I wonder how many of us are involved with 23.976 fps projects? My reason for the question is that the MTC standard of 23.976 fps doesn't exist? (ie when MIDI spec was developed this more recent standard didn't exist and hasn't ever been integrated) MTC is apparently squirted out of Logic at 24 fps when you choose 23.976 as your frame rate. So if you ever attempt to sync anything externally using 23.976 MTC, there will always be sync discrepancies. MTC can only be encoded as 24, 25, 29.97, or 30fps. However, neither ProTools nor Logic offer up any objection either when transmitting or receiving MTC when the frame rate of the project is 23.976. Please could anyone who has or is working with this standard drop a note to say what the circumstances are that they do this? (Even if simply running a movie internally in Logic) I work in the UK and have been involved in films that have been shot in the USA and involve CGI that then end up in sound post in Europe ....... hence the reason for my 23.976 fps picture work using Logic. However I prefer to sync the QT movie on an external machine (I use a Canopus Box and Virtual VTR software) ..... which causes sync nightmares. I'M SIMPLY CURIOUS AS TO UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES AND HOW COMMON THIS FPS RATE IS USED? All the very best D-t-F P.S Many thanks to Ski for his knowledge in this field.
