Hey Angelo,

I have a question about rendering in AME and Pr. I have a timeline fo 23.976fps footage from a DSLR, now when i export this footage i set the fps as 24, but when i see the final render it shows me a timecode that goes all the way to 30fps, and when I check the properties of the video in Pr, it either shows it as 24 fps or 23.999fps. Can you give some insigt as to why it would be doing this. Thanks
