Choosing the right project frame rate for showreel?
I think I might already "know" the answers I'll receive to this question but I thought I'd ask since I believe maybe someone out there could have a creative solution to this.
I'm beginning to build my showreel right now, and as expected, my projects have varying frame rates. Now I've read somewhere that it's best to pick the lowest common denominator and go with that frame rate since it's easier to remove frames than to interpolate non-existent ones; which makes sense but I'm wondering if there is something anyone has done out there that has faced this and gotten good results. Sorry if it seems like I'm answering my own question, but like I said, I just want to see if maybe theres a good solution to this besides what I've read.
I've seen plenty of showreels online and to be honest, I've never noticed any frame rate flaws in them (I figure it's very likely that these showreels have varying framerates), so I'm not sure if this is even a big enough deal to worry about. I just don't want to be done with the edit and have an "oh f**k" moment after realizing something went terribly wrong because of the framerate.
