Frame rate confusion

I just got a drone and the frame rate from the video is showing 29.97fps.

So my question is: Do I set the Hitfilm project settings to 1080p @ 30fps or 1080p @ 29.97fps?

I know the obvious answer is 1080p @ 29.97fps but then I was wondering about the export settings.

Will that also be 29.97fps or do I just export at 30fps?

All this confusion over .03fps.



  • Unless you're mixing it with other footage, either way will be fine. If you're mixing drone footage with footage involving dialog, then you should use the dialog footage as the baseline and match the drone footage to that.
