Burn-in timecode not working CS5.5

Aug 18, 2011 1:28 PM

Hello!

 

I'm running Premiere Pro CS5.5 on a Mac with OSX 10.7.1.

When trying to overlay timecode on a video, nothing is showing up in the Program viewer after applying the timecode effect. The effect does appear under the Effects Controls tab and will allow me to make adjustments, but the timecode is not visible on the video. It's as if the program knows what I want to do, but just won't make the effect visible.

 

I have reinstalled the program and checked that Helvetica is installed.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks!

    You applied the effect to a clip, or to a transparent layer?

     

    The footage specs match your sequence specs?

    OK.

     

    Do your sequence settings match whatever the effect is applied to?  The only reason I can think for the numbers not to show is that the media is larger than the sequence frame, and so the numbers appearing at the bottom are 'off screen' as a result.

    Hmmm.

     

    I'm stumped.  I don't think anyone's ever reported this one before.

    The Premiere Pro CS5.5 (5.5.2) update fixes the problem with the Timecode effect overlay not working, as well as some other issues. See this page for details:

    I have the correct update installed (5.5.2) - however I'm am experiencing problems with the timecode effect displaying. Apparently this issue was supposed to be fixed with the 5.5.2 update but it's still not working. MBP 17" early 2011, 10.7.5.

     

    Anyone else having this problem or can offer a solution? Thanks.

    I struggled with the same issue running Premiere CS6 and Mac OS 10.8.2. - and nothing here on the board seemed to help. BUT, I found that if I right click (CTRL + Mouseclick) the respective video sequence in the timeline (i.e. Video 2 track) and select "Scale to framesize", the timecode then appeared (it was just hidded due to the framesize).  Hope this helps anybody else with the same issue.

    As Todd reported, the bug was fixed.

    Check whether the Arial font is installed and enabled on your system. The behavior you describe is consistent with that font being absent.
