DJPitaB, your (solid) way of dealing with any dupe frames in video… Real quick so as not to de-rail this thread (I don’t have a way to do your wanted capture 😦) what is your method for that if you don’t mind sharing the info? Thanks.
Honestly, it’s a very manual process. Just for some background: I have a very good eye for missing & duplicate frames, so it irks me quite a bit when I see them. Because of that, I have a compulsion to fix these things whenever I can. It started with some music videos, then I did it with full episodes of TV shows, and eventually, full seasons of TV shows. It’s incredibly time-consuming, but oddly fulfilling when it’s complete.
If I have a source with duplicate frames (say 30 fps when it should be 24), I’ll slow the video to 24 fps so that every frame will show in the editing timeline. I then advance one-frame-at-a-time through the video and delete every duplicate. In the end, I should have a video that plays in 24p at the correct speed.
That process becomes more complicated, however, when something has been screen-grabbed, because in those instances, you’ll typically get both dropped frames and duplicate frames. When that happens, what I try to do is several passes of screen recordings (3 is usually enough) so that any frames that were missed by the first 1 or 2 passes will hopefully be caught by one of the recordings eventually.
I’ll do the same thing I mentioned earlier, deleting duplicate frames, but also noting any dropped frames and pulling them in from other screen grabs. I’m very meticulous, so it ends up working well; it just takes forever.
