I do some filmhandling for small Film festivals.
All these festivals encounter the same problem. Playing files of different framerates.
You could use a mac, set the beamer or projector as second screen and use software to play the file. However this does work, you need to set the refreshrate on your mac either to 50 or 60 Hz. This also is the base of time. A 25 fps file plays fine at 50 Hz refreshrate and a 30 FPS fine on 60Hz.
But no 24 fps plays ok neither does a 23,98 and a 29,97 FPS file.
Also making cues is not always good, and adjusting the soundlevel per files is also hardly featured.
Professional software is CueLab, but rather expensive and still not the right timing on the output.
NEW MEDIA PLAYER WITH PREMIERE ENGINE?
I would love to see timing of sourcefile on HDMI output, so never hickups in pans! (just like Premiere)
Cuelist with options of adjusting playback size (reeltime scaling just like PowerPoint).
Cuelist with option of Sound level (just like Cuelab)
Stills in the Cuelist with adjustable duration.
Manual next Cue by spacebar.
Possibly disolves from cue to cue.
You could call it Theater cue Player, or Festival player.
This would also be great in video recording studio's to start in pre-edited items.
Let me know as soon as it is a great hit!
with kind regards
