    AE incorrectly interprets h264 FPS

      I know the usual protocol is to never edit distribution codecs like h264. But I have I project that would be cumbersome to convert to another format first.


      I'm trying to make some adjustments to a couple h.264 clips processed by Handbrake.  Usually, movies are interpreted fine.  But lately, they are all importing with crazy FPS rates like -32768.00  (which interestingly is 1/2 of a 16-bit register overflow).  Even if I interpret footage with the correct FPS, the overall duration is incorrect.

      For comparison, Premiere CS5 thinks it's 900000 fps (!)

      Quicktime Player correctly identifies the proper duration and FPS.

      So I guess AE isn't using Quicktime to handle h264 movies.  Any wild ideas how to fix?
