    opening CS5 project in CC2014 - Timecode is different on spanned clips


      Hi All. I am having issues opening the CS5 project in CC2014 (latest update).


      Here's the story -


      I was editing a documentary project on an old Mac Pro and needed to upgrade (speed and storage wise). So I am now working on a thunderbolt 2 lacie drive and MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014) 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7, 16gig, SSD 512. This was just a month ago. So i loaded CC. The CS5 project opens fine and fast in the new CC2014 software on the new macbook, however I have discovered that many of the clips are wrong, same tracks just different timecode.


      Below are two identical timelines... The first is CC2014 and the lighter grey is CS5. The CS5 image is correct and the CC2014 is incorrect. The footage on both sequences is from the same tape number, but for some reason the time code is being read differently. The 803 clip is almost 10 minutes different in CC2014.


      Now both projects are identical. The only difference is that CC2014 converts the CS5 clip into a CC2014 project.

      Would appreciate any help and advice. I know it's not wise to change software during a project, but I didn't realise this would happen as it seems to be a fundamental change in the way the software reads the media, and I'm unsure what's new in CC2014 to make such a major problem occur.
