AE render files have wrong timestamp
When I render out of After Effects (.mov file in attached screenshot), it shows a timestamp of one day in the future. When I render out of Media Encoder (the mp4 file in the attached screenshot), it shows the correct timestamp. I can reproduce this error everytime.
My computer's date and time settings are correct, in the right timezone, and synced to update automatically.

@Antoine Autokroma I'll try and export something with After Codecs and share my findings

Same deal, noticed various times since during Spring 2020, still happening in October.

Could you share a file ?
Do you have the same issue with AfterCodecs ? https://www.autokroma.com/AfterCodecs
There is a free 500 frames trial, no need to pay to tell me if you experience the bug there

Good god, this has been an issue since March? What is Adobe doing??

Same problem here. But not happening on every computer, just one.

Has anyone found a fix for this? I'm getting the same problem, timestamp on rendered files from the Render Queue set 7 days in the future! Happening on renders from both my MBP 2019 and Windows 10 PC, both currently updated, latest version of AE on both as of Sept 14 2020.
Anyone from Adobe chime in here pls?

Same issue here, the timestamp for me is 7 days ahead.
Running AE 2020 build 34 (17.1.1) - on Windows 10

Happening to me too, the timestamp for me is 7 days ahead. Happening in all my renders in AE 17.
I'm on Win10 18363.

Having the same issue here, mine is the 6 days in the future. But only coming out of After Effects, media encoder exports are the correct date.
I also have the same problem with rendering QT ProRess 444 on Windows
It seems to have a wrong time on multiple fields.
"Tagged date" is 2 hours in the past.
"Encoded date" is 5 days and 22 hours in the future.
The time is OK when rendering AVI files.
Running build 34 (17.1.1)

Same here, 8 days in the future. How can I get my project file from the future when this job is all wrapped up! Happens from rendering on my Mac and PC.
In Windows, change the column header from "Date" to "Date Modified" to show real dates. "Date" just pulls timestamps from random and mostly useless metadata fields like "Photo Taken" "Date Late Accessed" etc.
This bug appears to be writing incorrect "media creation" metadata in all QuickTime files. Some more detail from ffmpeg/ffprobe attached.

Same here. Been happening for months. Looks like I'm 5 days in the future.
