    So I've searched around everywhere and I can't seem to find an answer. Now my brain hurts. I am fairly new to editing video footage,but competent. What's the best way to edit footage with different frame rates. For example my P3 is 24 fps, my GoPro is 60fps, and my iPhone is 30fps? Can I just dump them all into the editing program? Or do I need to switch all of my devices to the same Fps? Im not particularly stuck on one program. I have final cut, premier, iMovie, and DaVinci Resolve. What do you recommend?

    In FCP X if you set your project to, say, 1080p 25fps, it will automatically transcode whatever footage you add to the timeline to that frame rate. (If you don't specify the parameters for the project, it will automatically set it to the first bit of footage you add to the timeline).

    PowerDirector gives me a warning and that is all. It then does some type of magic and everything looks fine.
