In the days before TV productions were shot and edited in a video format, they were shot on film ( 24 fps, progressive ) and the footage was digitized to 30 fps, interlaced for editing and post production. The conversion required finding a way to make 24 frames of film fit into 30 video frames. Obviously, some of the 24 frames had to be repeated. This made for picture ‘ stutter ‘, not a smooth flow! This is the root problem of making video conversions when the frame rates between the two aren’t an even number.
Paulears is correct that many newbys, in their insecurity, think that buying Ultra hi-def cameras and shooting in exotic frame rates, and especially in seeking a ‘ film ‘ look ( whatever that really means ) will overshadow their lack of skill and experience. Practical limitations enter the equation . . . such as storage media and editing horsepower . . . and CERTAINLY how you propose to ‘ distribute ‘ your masterpiece whether YouTube, et al, or friends and family, or social media.
You have to GROW into video production if you ever hope to produce something which will captivate and entertain your Audience. Try out your ideas and see if they actually work.
