Having a strange problem. I've cut a short film in Premiere - and have imported into After Effects to grade the footage.
Now - I've discovered that all my footage in After Effects has shuffled exactly 2 frames forward in my timeline. (eg: frame 1:00:01 in my offline = frame 1:00:03 in After Effects).
Sounds like I've made a mistake and stuck in 2 frames at the start somewhere by accident.
HOWEVER - all my cuts, right through to the last (I have about 100 cuts) ALL line up with the offline. Eg: if frame 1:00:01 is a clip's out point in Premiere, it's also an out point for the same clip in AE.
I'm quite the novice in After Effects, but know my way around video programs generally - can some spot what I may have done wrong?
(initially thought this was a field problem - for the record I'm cutting in HDV 1080i PAL, and importing into AE upper field first)
Look forward to some feedback! Thanks in advance...
Check your time code display. Premiere may be set for non drop frame timecode, AE may be set to DF timecode. If it's a Timecode display problem then there are no dropped frames. You can easily verify this by changing the time display in AE and Premiere to frames or both to NDF time code.
