Hello,

 

I recently got a new pc and updated to Premiere 2020 after using a very old 2014 version on my old computer. Both PCs are running Windows 10.

 

My issue is that I opened up a project that I started on a year and a half ago using 2014 Premiere with 2020 Premiere, and now the video I'm editing is a few frames out of sync. The audio perfectly matches up with my old project however.

 

The problem is that it seems to vary the further I go into the timeline. I've already made a bunch of cuts, keyframes and added a bunch of effects a year ago using 2014 Premiere, so I don't know if it was always out of sync in 2014, but I just compensated for it, or if 2020 is the one that's out of sync.

 

The original was recorded on an Elgato HD60 (video capture device) and is an MP4 file.

I still have access to my old PC with the old version of Premiere, so if there is any info I could gather from there to help, please let me know. Is there any way I can make it match up with my keyframes and cuts without having to manually go and redo everything?

I already tried clearing the cache. I'm also working from a brand new computer so there were no cache files prior to this.

I'm not sure if it does. How would I be able to see that? If it does though, wouldn't both projects have the exact same syncing issues?

You can check the file with Mediainfo.

Please post the outcome in treeview here on the forum.

2020 is different from 2014.

 

If it were me i would finish the project in 2014 and start fresh in 2020.

This is the treeview. Looks like the framerate is constant.
