Someone please explain frame rates to me.

Hi all. So I have basic information about frame rates in video. What I want to know is, why do I have different frame rate options for my timeline?

What happens if I drop 25fps footage in a 50fps timeline and vice versa? What happens if 120fps footage is in a 8fps timeline? I have always worked in a 50fps timeline and film almost everything in 50fps incase I want to half time it. Is that a stupid way to work?

This is basic information but it's pretty extensive to talk about. You should really google it and study up because frame rates are super tricky. I assume you're in Europe if you're shooting 25fps and 50fps. You should learn about pull downs and that certain mismatched framerates can cause dropped/duplicate frames.

Here's an article that explains some stuff.
