On my new machine, the rendered frames have the wrong date (seems almost like the wrong timezone, since it is only a day or a few hours behind). The system time, date and timezone are all correct, and it seems all other files are fine. It's just the renders coming from AE.
Any theories, or things I could look into?
Win7Pro i7 machine, 32 gigs RAM.
What exact version of After Effects?
When you say that the date is wrong, what exactly do you mean? How are you viewing the date; how is the date generated?
AE CS6 188.8.131.52
When I view the files in any window (Windows Explorer), the creation date/time is shown as several hours earlier than it actually was made.
All other files have the correct creation date.
Not that this would probably fix it, but you should update your AE. CS6 is on 11.0.4 now.
