I have been scanning some old Regular 8 movie film which was probably recorded at about 16fps as when played back at that speed, movement appears reasonably natural.
The scans are saved as a sequence of individual frames and each frame is 1920x1080 with black bars at the side to adjust for the 4:3 image.
Video (PAL) runs at 25fps so if I simply play the movie, everything looks speeded up.
Presumably I need to increase my number of frames from 16 to 25 by "inserting" some extra frames.
How can I best accomplish this?
I am a bit daunted by virtual dub and avisynth and have both Sony Vegas 12 and Pinnacle Studio 17. I am aware of Twixtor but do not know how to use it.
One problem I did have when "playing around" to find a solution was jerky movement in pans.
Some films are in poor condition so I also need to crop some images and make other adjustments to levels and sharpness but that is another story.... Getting a sensible workflow for frame speed will do for now.
Many thanks for your advice
