Hi Guys and Gals,

For those of you that capture video and create still image sequence files... how do you do that with an mp4 file? I see export settings for 29.97 fps. available but not a setting for a solid 30 fps. export. When I create image files from the captured video, every so many frames there is a very small jump between frames and it's enough to show up in the 3d tracking process. I'm capturing test footage from my Samsung tablet if that helps.

Can you do a motion track at 29.97 instead?

I think the problem was that I assumed the mp4 playback rate to be 29.97 fps when it is actually 30.418 fps. When I use After Effects to create an image sequence using that rate and then bring the sequence file into Layout I get a more reliable track. I really thought I would just be able to track the mp4 file in AE and then use the same mp4 as the backdrop in Layout. Sorry about the mixup in frame rates earlier. It seems to be OK so far. I wouldn't have thought to examine the frame rate if you hadn't mentioned it so thanks for the heads up!

Is there a way to adjust the frame rate in LW? I've never had to adjust it but can't seem to locate this function.

You can change it in the image editor.
