60FPS

Anyone else think 60FPS looks horrible? I hope newer movies don't take this up. It look very ugly.

60p is a video look. If you're shooting for network television, it's fine.

If you're wanting to stay with the traditional film look, stick with 24p.

Peter Jackson shot the Hobbit trilogy at 48fps, which is (obviously) a multiple of 24fps, so it's in the same family. But it's a high frame rate, and audiences didn't respond well. It makes for better FX compositing, but not great narrative presentation in the end.

I completely distaste 60fps. It's heavy on the eyes if you're not playing first person shooter games for some reason and there's no motion blur in 60fps. Even though 24fps is traditional it works and makes sense. It is also less costly than recording 60fps footage, so why the unnecessary expense.

When I say cost I mean storage. RAW 60fps footage will more than likely be more writing data than 24fps. That means more money on hard drive/memory space. So image the difference with 24 and 60fps for a feature film.

Okay, so when you said “It is also less costly” you meant it takes less
storage. What are the cost differences in drive/memory space?

If you record video footage at 24fps obviously the data that writes to the hard drive would be much less than it if were 60fps. So if you have a 90-minute film there's a possibility that you might need more space.

I know that you will need more space. You said it is less costly. What are the costs differences?

I'm sure a 500gb Disk is cheaper than 1tb. Just an example.

If you don't want to answer this simple question just say so.
I don't understand why you always avoid any simple discussion.

I will admit I only have a marginal experience on higher frame rates so if I say something wrong I apologize. That said I only think its useful for slow motion. Recording and playing at higher frame rates gives the footage I've seen that soap opera look that I can't stand.

It's wonderful for fast action sequences!

Lol, I did answer your question. The cost difference is obvious. Less storage will have a cost and more storage will cost more. I can't give exact figures. If your 90 minute RAW footage at 60fps exceeds the small storage then you'll have to afford more space.

I'm sorry you aren't interested in having this discussion. I made the assumption
that you knew a about the topic because of your statement. I see now that you
know nothing about the cost differences.
