I'm not able to slow down my 120 fps footage without the result being extremely choppy/not smooth.

[ Edited ]

I was filming with my Hero 5 Black the other day with my Karma Grip for an extremely smooth result.  I filmed in 24 fps, 60 fps, 90fps and 120 fps.  I'm having a lot of trouble slowing down my 120 fps in post using premier pro.  I understand that if I set the speed/duration to 20% for the 120 fps footage that in theory, I should be getting solid smooth slow motion at 24 fps.  In reality however, I'm getting an awful result. I tried slowing it down by 40% and 60% as well and the footage is still really bad.  How do i fix this?

 

My computer is a 2017 Mac Book Pro.

3.1 GHz Intel Core i5

16 GB RAM

500 GB SSD

 

I don't know what to do.  I've shot at 120 fps before and successfully managed to slow the footage down slowly. 

 

Additionally, when i import the footage, my computer is slowing down the 120 fps footage as well in quick time.  I've honestly never seen this and have done a ton of research today on the internet and have found some forums with people having similar problems but ultimately, nothing has been resolved.  Please please please help!!

Re: I'm not able to slow down my 120 fps footage without the result being extremely choppy/not smoot

I am having the same issue. I recorded in 120 fps on 720 and its playing back like its recorded in 30 fps and any attempts to slow down in premiere pro cc just make it super choppy. This is very odd because I have never had this issue before.
