Hi, I'm new to this software. Recently just got back from a skiing holiday and I want to be able to really slow my footage down, so whilst i was out there i recorded some shots in 1080p at 240 fps. I have converted the video from H.265, and it converted to 240 fps, which is what I wanted. But then when i add it to my project on Premiere Elements 19, it wont let me export my video in any higher than 60 fps. Is there a way around this or am I stuck with only using 60 fps?
Premiere Elements will not create a project faster than 60 fps.
Thanks for reaching out. As @Steve suggested Premiere Elements does not support more than 60fps, however, you may want to have a look at this article: Change clip speed & duration in Premiere Elements It explains how you can use Premiere Elements to change the speed of the clip's playback.
Let us know if it helps.
One way to slow down your footage will take a two-step process.
1. Uncouple the video from the audio.
2. Delete the audio.
3. Select the video and choose Clip —> Time Stretch...
4. Set the Speed to 50% in the dialog window
5. Add narration using Tools —> Narration
6. Optionally add music to Music row on Timeline.
That will give you a "faster FPS" .... not as good as a real FPS; but better than the 60 FPS limit, perhaps.
Is the original poster trying to slow down his video?
I got the idea he (or she) just wanted to create a video at 240 frames per second.
Even if you were able to export 240 fps your slowed down footage will look awful.
First slowing it down then interpolating the frames? Not a good idea.
Dont go below 25% then it will still appear smooth in a 60 fps timeline.
