Hi, I’m trying to see if Matchbox can help me with my documentary project. It utilizes a lot of old television footage that was provided to us via screeners from ESPN. Now they’ve sent along masters that I thought were only going to be for the clips we needed with a couple seconds handles but in some cases they’ve sent 10 minute (or more) stretches that contain several clips we need, but there is no embedded timecode that syncs up to the original screener timecode so matching them up has been extremely time consuming.
Visually they’re nearly identical minus the printed timecode on the screeners. I was hoping Matchbox could help me identify the clips used in the film from these long master files, but I couldn’t even really test it because the film frame rate is 23.98, the screener footage came to us at 29.97, and the master footage is 59.94. Is there anything I can do to have Matchbox help with this process short of re-rendering every huge master file at 23.98 or 29.97?
