    Export AAF with multiple framerates

    Hi! I have a project with mixed framerates. 25 and 100 FPS.

    My project is 1080 25P. 

    All my videos are AMA linked.

    When I need to export an AAF to deliver to the post-studio I export my timeline as AAF with Consolidate and Embed Media (in a folder) checked. I noticed that 100FPS clips are exported as 25FPS. 

    As an example: In my timeline I have 1 clip (100fps) with a 25% speed Timewarp applied to convert to 1/4 slowmotion. (100fps/4=25fps). But in resulted AAF the clip was interpreted as a 25fps and reduced 1/4 to a result if a HORRIBLE 6fps clip (25fps/4=6,25fps) 


    What's wrong with my export settings?

    There are not framerate Consolidate options in the export settings?

    To solve it I'm exporting with "copy and link" option instead "consolidate and embed" AFTER previously consolidate my timeline with Consolidate/Transcode (in this window I have framerate conversion options)


    Any advice to improve my export workaround?

    Re: Export AAF with multiple framerates

    It's because you're making new media by consolidating and the frame rate is fixed on consolidated media. If you select Transcode you have the option to "Keep native frame rate" or "Convert to project frame rate".  In this case, keep the native frame rate.  Then make a linked AAF from the transcoded.exported sequence that is created when you do a transcode.  That AAF will link to the transcoded clips.

    Or you could just send your AMA media along with a AAF from your sequence.  That may or may not be appealing.

    Must think of something clever to go here...
