Hello there,
I'm hoping to clarify some issues I've had. Sometimes when rendering a 15 second spot out of After Effects I get Quicktime timecode duration that says it's 0:00:00:15.01. What's up with that extra frame?

And when I check the time in Final Cut or Premiere it says duration is 0:00:00:15:00, but Media End is 00:00:14:29. Any idea there? I know in AE when I set my comp settings to 15 seconds, I can only drag the timeline scrubber to 00:00:14:29.

Output settings for this particular project were NTSC D1, 29.97fps, No Field Dominance.


Thanks for any insight into this!

It's obviously not an issue with AE or FCP. You received a report of an additional frame via QT, a non-professional application. ???

It's a non-issue. Time to move one.

I guess my questions are more of curiosity. I'm sure it's a non-issue with Quicktime, but I'm wondering the reason. And that didn't address the question of why FCP shows the media end as it does.

[Aaron Ray] "And that didn't address the question of why FCP shows the media end as it does."

By default, AE and FCP start their count from 0, not 1. As for QuickTime Player, it's not a front-end for pro video apps - so why bother.
