Hi guys!
i have rendered 200 frames in 3ds max,
when i export them as a footage to after effecs i have layer 6 seconds length, and when i move marker to the end of the clip after writes that it is ~167 frame.
In composition settings frame rate is setted up to 25 frames per second.
As i understand it must be 8 seconds and 200 frames. So how to fix that? thank you.

The frame rate of the imported image sequence is not controlled by the comp's frame rate; it's controlled by its own separate interpretation settings [link].

Right-click the sequence in the project panel and choose Interpret Footage... > Main. For Frame Rate, click "Conform to frame rate:" and enter the correct frame rate (25).

The default frame rate for image sequences is 30 fps. You can change this default in Preferences > Import. This will not affect sequences you've already imported -- as above, use Interpret Footage for that -- but it will affect newly-imported sequences.
