I created an 8 minute comp (7552x552) at 29.97. The client wants is at 59.94, 24 bit Targa sequence. After I export my final comp, I re-import the Targa sequence to check for errors and my 8 minute video is 16 minutes. I've change the frame rate to 59.94 in the render settings, with no luck. I changed the actual comp settings to 59.94 and still get the same results. I've tried dropping my final comp into another 59.94 comp and render it out that way but I still get a 16 minute video when I re-import my Targa sequence.
I've also tried changing the field rendering. I've exported with it off and with Upper field and I still get a 16 minute Targa sequence. I've never exported a Targa sequence out of AE before so I really don't know what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Image sequences do not store any information about framerate. Because of this, After Effects applies a default framerate, specified under "Sequence Footage" in After Effects > Preferences > Import.
You can override that guess by right-clicking your imported sequence and using Interpret footage [link] to change its frame rate.
