    Video Exported is Shorter than Expected


      I have a very frustrating  problem that makes absolutely no sense to me. I have a 1920 x 1080, 29.97fps  timeline in Premiere Pro CS5. The duration of my work are is 06:54:08. Upon exporting, the resulting video file comes out at 06:36:00 in length.


      I of course did not check this initially, so I went ahead and did a complete audio post mix in Pro Tools using the exported file as reference. Then to my horror, attempting to bring the finished mix back into Premiere, it was 18 seconds shorter than it should have been!! I thought I could fix it by stretching the mix to fit, but the sync is completely off no matter what I try.


      My export settings were H264, 640x360, 29.97 fps.


      Can anyone explain to me how and why Premiere would export a video file that is shorter in duration than what the timeline says it's supposed to be?


      I wasted hours in audio post because of this and am extremely frustrated..
