High framerates not there by default in sequence settings
In the sequence settings dialog box, the framerate options are defaulted to only show up to 30 FPS. The only way to get higher framerates to show up is to drop a high framerate clip into the timeline and then choose "change sequence settings", in which case the sequence settings will only then allow the higher framerate options to show up.
Why is this? Why can't all possible framerates always be in that dialog box? What if I want to create a high framerate sequence, but don't have high framerate clips to go through this process in order to activate the rest of the options? I mean, I may want to edit 30 fps on a 60 fps timeline in order to essentially "upconvert" it. Or I may have a timeline that I've already created at 30 fps, and then decide to drop some higher framerate footage into it later, at which point i want to change the timeline to a higher framerate. The only way to do this currently would be to create a whole new timeline, drop the high framerate footage into it in order to get the "change sequence settings" option, in order to get the higher framerate options to activate... this is quite a workaround when I should just be able to access the higher framerate options whenever I want.
Basically... put the higher framerate options there by default, please.
Running into this problem again. It's very annoying to not have those options there when I want to change a 30 fps timeline to a 60 fps after I've already used the sequence. I've created a 30 fps sequence which I've put 60 fps footage into, and then used that sequence as multi-camera clip in another sequence. After some editing, I've discovered that I want to slow some of the clips from the multi-clip down, which I should be able to do with 60fps footage in a 30 fps timeline and have smooth slo-mo. BUT since I originally created the multi-clip timeline in 30 fps, it's not recognizing the clips within that timeline as 60 fps, and I'm getting juttery slo-mo as a result. Now, in order to get the multi-clip sequence to 60 fps, I have to create a new sequence, drop 60 fps footage into it just to get the "change sequence settings" option, and only THEN do I get access to the higher framerates in order to change. BUUUUTTT... I can't do that. Because I can't change the edited multi-clip in the other timeline to that new 60 fps timeline. I would have to re-edit the multi-clip all over again with the new 60 fps multi-clip timeline. And obviously, I'm not gonna do that. So now I simply can't get smooth slo-mo without having to do some kind of workaround, like go back into the multi-clip sequence and choose each piece of the original footage and copy it into the new timeline and use that to make slo-mo....
BLAH BLAH BLAH... the point is that you've made things super difficult for me now by not simply having all the framerate options be there by default. If they were, I could simply just go into the 30 fps timeline and switch it to 60 fps. But because you've hidden those options away unless the do the whole drop-60fps-footage-into-a-timeline-and-select-"change sequence settings"-thing... I'm now screwed over here.
Bottom-line: Please fix this soon. I know I'm speaking into a void here apparently, but in the off chance that somebody from Adobe decides to check these boards like once a month, it seems... and you happen to see this... please fix it.
