    Group clipping mixed frame rates Composer 7 or 8?

    Hey gang,

    We're doing a 7 camera shoot and my bosses love to shoot in 23.98.  Some of the lipstick cameras can only do 29.97.   Because of time constraints and editing demands we will need to use group clipping to be efficient.

    I've been searching the boards but can't find if Avid has improved the ability to mix frame rates in group clips in Media Composer 7 or 8.

    I'm running 6.5 in 14 bays and need to make the jump before the year is up but if I could group clip mixed frame rates it would drive that decision.

    Does anybody know if they've made that improvement?  I've spent an hour searchign and can't find any reference to it.

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    Doug

    Nope.  Limitation still exists.  I guess transcode on ingest is an option if you can work at full resolution.

    Just came across this old thread -- haven't tried it myself, but curious about it:
