    No clue where to post this.

    Has anyone had the problem when playing back a movie in the animation codec through QT that the FPS in the movie inspector detail properties is incorrect?

    I’ve tested the same footage H.264 and it correctly displays the FPS as 29.97
    When I do this with the animation compressed files it reads it at 28.5

    Doesn’t bug me but I have a client who is saying that they are at the wrong frame rate but I know if they brought them into an NLE I would be proven correct.

    Thanks Dave,
    I figured as much. Funny thing is the client’s encoder is seeing the same frame rate as QT does. I KNOW it’s @ 29.97. So I am finding out now what encoder she uses.

    DAMN this online push. An unnamed studio wants all these assets online instead of me sending digibeta’s out because it’s just “easier” that way.

    Just out of curiosity Joey, are you running FCP 7?

    I recently updated to FCP7 and have just come across this issue. I’m also using Quicktime 7.6.4 on OS X 10.5.8

    Not yet. Still on 6. But QT has not fixed this either way.
