We work on a project where some sequences were filmed at 18 fps, others at 12 fps and others at 6 fps. The customer wants this shooting framerate embedded in the metadata of the files. On our Baselight, the software embeds the project framerate, this could be 18 or anything else, but the same for the whole project; I think it is the projection framerate that should be embedded (if any) and not the shooting framerate. This is for old archive material, the purpose of the job is to have long-term storage digital masters.
How would a projectionist (who is not the author of the film) know where to switch to 6 fps if he was even able to do this, Wasn't the intention of the author to have a faster pace when he shoots at 6fps?
