Hi. Not sure if this is possible in Premiere Pro. I have CS5.5.
I am trying to create a running clock (Digital readout - HH:MM:SS or even better if I can do HH:MM:SS:mmm) on the bottom of the screen. (Added effect for suspense)
Anyone have an idea on how to do this ? Or is this an After Effects kind of thing ?
You can use the Adobe Timecode effect in Premiere, but After Effects is really the best place to get the look you will want

I agree with Jeff, that AE offers more control.
However, one can add Transparent Video, on a higher Video Track, and then add the TimeCode Effect to that. By applying to a Transparent Video, one can use Motion>Scale and Motion>Position, plus other Effects, to alter it to suit. One could even Keyframe its Opacity to "pop up," where desired, and then disappear, until needed again.
