    Same clip, different lengths in CS3 and CS4?

      I'm trying to fix a problem I'm having importing my CS3 project into CS4 and I noticed that the clip lengths in the properties windows do not match for my files. For example, if I open my clip in CS3 (where it was originally edited) it shows it this:

      File Path: F:TapesTape 24Scene 018 - Ally & Paul Coffee (9).m2t
      Type: MPEG Movie
      File Size: 365.4 MB
      Image Size: 1440 x 1080
      Pixel Depth: 1440
      Frame Rate: 29.97
      Source Audio Format: 48000 Hz - compressed - Stereo
      Project Audio Format: 48000 Hz - 32 bit floating point - Stereo
      Total Duration: 00;01;54;14
      Average Data Rate: 3.2 MB / second
      Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.333

      But in CS4 the properties show up as this:
      File Path: F:TapesTape 24Scene 018 - Ally & Paul Coffee (9).m2t
      Type: MPEG Movie
      File Size: 365.4 MB
      Image Size: 1440 x 1080
      Pixel Depth: 32
      Frame Rate: 29.97
      Source Audio Format: 48000 Hz - compressed - Stereo
      Project Audio Format: 48000 Hz - 32 bit floating point - Stereo
      Total Duration: 00;01;53;08
      Average Data Rate: 3.2 MB / second
      Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.3333

      What would cause this discrepancy? I shot at 30f on a Canon XH-A1. My project settings in CS4 are HDV 1080p30. Do I have the wrong settings? How could the same clip be of two different lengths. I'm so confused!

      Please respond only if you have a suggestion. I am not looking for comments about how I shouldn't switch programs midstream. I would like some honest help, however!

      Thanks!
