Many people ask me why I always recommend third-party tools when it comes to doing tasks in Media Composer.  The answer is quite simple.  In most cases, once something is added to Media Composer, that’s it.  It doesn’t get many major updates past the point of implementation (Titler+ is an exception to that, and the reason it’s getting major updates is that it was a complete dog when first added).  Companies like Boris FX bridge the gap between what our NLE does, and tasks we need it to do.  I did a write up recently

Zoom.us establishes 25p as worldwide framerate—Best practices?

Thanks to a panelist on Alex Lindsay’s Office Hours, I discovered (and later verified myself) that Zoom.us has established exact 25p as the de facto worldwide framerate for video teleconferencing. Zoom.us is one of the most popular teleconference service, and there is no setting. We have confirmed that the video sent by Zoom.us (and the provided video file from Zoom.us) is 25p CFR (constant framerate) no matter what the source video framerate may be. This article is about what that means for us, and the best practices to maintain framerate consistency throughout a workflow to
