Hi there. I'm using Premiere Pro v7.0
I've taken a few clips that are .mov files. In quicktime the videos look beautiful and display at full frame rate. However, in Premiere, instead of displaying or saving at the correct frame rate of 29.97, it thinks the frame rate is 2.99 fps. The strange thing is is that the duration of the video is correct, so if I try to manually adjust the frame rate with the 'Interpret Footage' it shortens the duration of the clip proportionally. Another odd thing is that Premiere shows the video track frame rate to be 29.97 in the clip properties but then assigns a frame rate of 2.99 for the whole thing. Here's what it shows for one of them:

Does anyone have a fix for this? Thanks!
I would gladly not. However, it is the only format that my camera records at. Do you have any recommendations for a free .mov -> anything else converter? I'd have to re-do most of my movie that way, but that'd be alright if it's the only option.
it is the only format that my camera records at.
Not all cameras are good choices if the user intends to edit the footage. None of those that are good choices will record in MOV format.
Use a different camera.
