    What is this Adobe Premiere Essentials 11 that you are running? Did you want to write Adobe Premiere Elements 11? Is so, on what computer operating system is it running, including 32 or 64 bit?


    Would you be looking for a program such as DV Date

    Please refer to its information on "about datecode and timecode"


    Another product that you might want to check out is the DV Date plug-in for Windows (an entirely different product than the DV Date mentioned above.


    Please review.

    I think you'll find that the camcorder is just displaying it during playback. It will not be encoded onto the video track itself. If that is what you want you can add the date / time details using the Titler.

    In the VHS days, most cameras would burn that info to the tape, but many users wanted to get rid of it.


    With miniDV cameras, some could be set to burn in the info, or not. Often, users forgot to change the setting, and then wanted a way to delete it.


    Every now and then, I see a request to ADD that info to a file, and one of the DvDate programs (same general name, but different programs) usually works for them.


    Now, I add TimeCode to many intermediate videos, going out to clients, and use either PrPro, or After Effects, for that. No date, but when they need to make notes, the TimeCode is very helpful - still, something different.


    Where I want a date to appear, I just do a Title, with that info, but seldom want it.
