AE 2020 : Audio is Out of Sync in Rendered (target) Movie when using H264 Codec

Adobe After Effects (version 2020) - Sound is out of Sync after Rendering (With H264 Codec).

(when using playback in After Effects the Sound stays in Sync; only the Rendered movie is Out of Sync).


Sound is about 5 second too Early (for the whole rendered movie) in comparisation to the original source file. This only happens when I select the H264 Codec as 'target' codec (tried several times).


Anybody any solution?


This problem does Not occur when a lossless AVI codec is used instead (see second movie settings  below) then the Sound stays In Sync.
Both Rendered files are using the same Audio codec.
Both Rendered files are using the same Source Movie with an Original Framerate of  23.976 FPS.


In the Rendered Movie with Sound IN Sync it uses the AVI Lossless codec and
the Sound Interleave, duration is changed to: 959 ms (23.00 video frames).
This is done automatically by Adobe After effects (not manually by me).
When using the Lossless AVI codec (default setting in Adobe After Effects) then Sound Stays IN Sync.


When I manually change the (target) codec to H264 (I want a lower bitrate; due to not enough HD space).
Then the Sound gets Out of Sync (the sound is about 5 second too early for the whole rendered movie).

 

FYI (see first movie settings below); In the Rendered 'Out of Sync' movie the Sound part still uses Interleave, duration of: 958 ms (22.97 video frames). But Interleave, preload duration is set to : 959 ms

Both values are not set by me; but by After Effects automatically.
