Update

Thank for your notification
Script updated for newest versions of AfterEffects

Update required

I noticed that in the latest versions of AE to have the keyframes pasted with the correct FPS you need to specify the Units per second together with other comp attributes before the transform matrix in the clipboard data, like this:

Adobe After Effects 8.0 Keyframe Data

Units Per Second 24
Source Width 1920
Source Height 1080
Source Pixel Aspect Ratio 1
Comp Pixel Aspect Ratio 1

Transform Position
Frame X pixels Y pixels Z pixels
0 2576.81 -137.659 -297.006

Until the scripts gets updated, you can do it manually by pasting into notepad and editing the data before copying it back to AE.
