Quicktime output lying about time of output from FCP7...?
on Jul 9, 2015 at 5:07:33 pm

Working on a project cut on FCPX, converted to (and actively cutting in) FCP7, on a 3.4GHz i7 iMac running OS10.9.9.5.

The FCP7 timeline is 1:30. The output as viewed in Quicktime is 1:17.

Anyone ever come across this (or anything like it)? Any ideas what might be causing it?

It sounds like a frame rate issue. Something ain't Kosher with your frame rates.

Both FCP and QT are saying 23.98.

It's beyond frustrating, I tells ya.

...and the footage you edited was what frame rate? Possibly 24p, but the footage's actual frame rate is 29.97?

The footage claims to be 23.98 as well.

I dropped the footage into a fresh timeline (and FCP conformed it to the footage settings) to be sure everything was the same, which I've done a thousand times before without issue.

Well, if you're double-dog certain that you made no errors in your tried-and-true procedures, it may be in order to trash your FCP Preferences and try it again.

But I'd scrtinize your procedures first. For example, I suffer from the inability to type accurately. I constantly have to double and triple check my typing, and even then I don't catch everything. It's a real drag. So I KNOW all about making mistakes when typing in frame rates!
