Greetings (Windows 7 64-bit, Intel i-7 2600K CPU @ 3.40 Ghz 8 Core, 16Gb DIMM memory)
I've used most generations of MEP (I'm currently on 2013 premium) and have got to know the software's quirks and foibles but now I've hit a snag.
My beloved DV video camera has finally given up the ghost, and I've invested in a more up to date model that records up to Full HD in .mov format with H.264 video and sowt: 16-bit signed little-endian audio.
These import into MEP 2013 and play without problem BUT when I record a fullHD clip @ 1920x1080 59.94 fps MEP will insist on telling me that the file is 29.97 fps - this happens even when I tell MEP the file is 59.94fps. I can export a file to 59.97fps, I can import a file (modified by Avidemux or Virtualdub or MPEGStreamclip) and MEP recognises the true fps of 59.94 but I don't want to re-encode my files before I process them - it defeats the whole object.
Strangely, when i import a video from the camera into Avidemux and scroll forward frame by frame, every other frame is black so I assume this fact and MEP only recognising 29.97 fps for the video are linked.
This is my first foray into HD and I know very little about the .mov format - Googling gives some answers but I'm really still none the wiser.
If anyone can enlighten me as whether there is any way to get MEP to recognise my 59.94fps files I would be most grateful.
