    Overflow error and framerate matchup problems/cutting my video.


      Hello all, I'm new to Adobe After Effects, and really need help with this. I've looked up the solution to the overflow error, and I've figured out how to stop it from happening, but I've had a problem with it anyway.

      I recorded a 21 minute video, originally flv and converted to mp4, and AE clocks it at "59.999" fps, and my composition is 60. So I made AE interpret my recording as 60 fps, but instead of condensing it or even staying the same, it cut my video at around the 18 minute mark. If I try to keep the video at 59.999 fps, I get the overflow error and nothing shows up, but the video shows to be at the original 21 minute length. If I try to match the composition to 59.999 frames, or even create a composition based off of the video, I get the error too. "overflow converting ratio denominators (17 : 18)"
