I've been working on a shot for two days now (off and on) and have done it four times and each time it renders out at 85 fps instead of the standard NTSC 29.97 that it's set at. I start a new project each go round in case the file is corrupted but it renders out at 85 regardless. What could cause sucha thing???

Sounds like a codec issue... what are you using?

I'm using Quicktime 6, same as I always have. I've seen this before, but rarely and usually dumping the file and starting over again would solve it, but not this time.

Which codec are you using, though? Quicktime 6 supports many codecs. When you go to export, after choosing Quicktime export, which codec do you choose?

We use NTSC 29.97, but discovered yesterday that Alam always does it at 30 regradless, so have selected that rate and it seems to have solved the problem. Very strange though.
