Shooting a scene with some hi-speed elements and wondered if anyone has had any problems or suggestions for doing the following:

1. Turning 1,500 fps back to 24fps. We need to recreate the same shots in both hi-speed and 24fps and I would assume it's fairly simple to remove the extra frames if we just shoot the entire action at 1,500.

2. Mixing 2K and/or 1080 footage on the Weisscam and mixing it with 4K footage from the Red MX.

Thanks for the assistance.

1. Just discarding 62 frames and keeping one would be equivalent to about a three degree shutter angle. You'd lose the illusion of motion. That may be what you want, but otherwise, you'd either have to put it through Arri Relativity, or shoot a 24 fps camera alongside the Weisscam.

2. Mixing the "K"'s isn't going to be a big deal. To mix them without losing the advantage of the Red Raw data in color timing may add a slight complication. You may want to time the Red stuff the Red way, then convert it, and time again conventionally to match in the high speed. Talk to your post house during pre production about that.
