Right, with 61 FPS and 119.88 FPS it doesn't work either.
I just found out how it works. As soon as I right-click on a video file 
in the Media tab and then go to Info in the context menu and change the 
FPS from 119.88 to 120 FPS, the m2ts and mpeg proxy creation works.
By the way, the m2ts format creates extremely small files with high 
image quality. I could reduce a 1 GB file to 50 MB with scale 1/2. This 
format is optimal for Proxy.
I only have the problem that I have to manually change the many 119.88 
FPS files to 120 FPS. It will take me some time. Now that I think about 
it, an overwrite function would be very useful. Maybe it would be a 
solution for the future to select multiple files in the media tab, and 
change the FPS for them, otherwise you always have to adjust every 
single file of many.

By the way, in Resolve and PP the FPS for each file is always displayed. 
I would appreciate it if Cin could also display it, even if this reduces 
the loading time.
