So I am using a combination of cameras (it will be a vlog) I will be filming everything in 1080p 60fps and exporting in 1080p 60fps to upload to youtube. I will be using my phantom 4 and I was thinking of using 4k 30fps because it will be more cinematic. Will it look better if filmed a 4k clip at 30fps rendering at 1080p 60fps? Or should I just use 1080p 60fps for my phantom 4?

Would love some of your thoughts on this?

Depends on the software you use to create the extra frames.  

If the software just duplicates the frames to get 60fps then some people will find it annoying since it will jump from smooth video to video where you can see individual frames, most people probably wont notice.

In the last video I made I had some fast pans in sports mode where the 30fps really annoyed me,  I used ffmpeg's new minterpolate filter which calculates the new frames based on the movement in the previous ones to convert it to 60fps.  It is impossible to tell the result from real 60fps video, very impressed - don't need a P4 Pro now!

I will be using premier pro, what software do you use?

How do I get the minterpolate filter?

It's part of ffmpeg's current release available from the ffmpeg website (completely free), hasn't been there long so don't try using an old version.

I've no idea what method premier pro uses to create extra frames, but if it doesn't provide smooth 60fps then you can put your Phantom video files through ffmpeg first, then use premier pro, make sure you specify a very high quality for the output and you wont loose much IQ.

Is there like a tutorial on how to do it?
