Wrong frame rate for .mov imports

Dec 4, 2009 2:13 AM

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:

 

Type: QuickTime Movie
File Size: 151.08MB
Image Size: 848x480

 

Pixel Depth: 24
Frame Rate: 2.99
Audio 44100 Hz - 16 bit - Mono
Total Duration: 00;04;08;15
Average Date Rate: 622.55KB / second
Pixel Aspect Ration: 1.000

 

Quick Time Details:
Move contains 1 video track(s), 1 audio track(s) and 0 timecode track(s)

 

Video:
This movie appears to have DROPPED FRAMES.
There is 1 frame with a duration of 64/2997ths.
There are 7449 frames with a duration of 1/29.97th.

 

Video track 1:
Duration is 00;04;08;15
Average frame rate is 29.97 fps

 

Video track 1 contains 1 type(s) of video data:

 

Video data block #1:
Frame size = 848 x 480
Compressor =
Quality = Least (1.00)

 


Does anyone have a fix for this? Thanks!

    Don't use Quircktime, especially on such an old version.

    Try opening in QT pro ($30 if you don't have) and "save as" something such AVI DV.

    ...or try MPEG Streamclip, which is free and gives you most of the same functions as QT Pro (and a few additional ones, as well).

    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.

    The Canon 5D is an obvious exception to this.
