    relative measurements

    cfg_2451 Level 2

      Is there any way in PPro CS6 to make relative measurements in the timeline? It looks like everthing is absolute from the far left hand side of the timeline where the playhead position is zero.


      One way to do this might be to set the playhead to a random point in the timeline and zero it. This would make relative measurements possible. Like: "start the lower third 00;01;21 after the start of the 'Dr G intro' clip."  Unfortunately hours of searching have turned up nada, so I'm asking here.


      I've got a whole list of these kinds of chages, and if I can't find a way to do relative measurements I'm going to spend a lot of time doing "time math" to figure out where to put new lowerthirds and chapter markers. Sigh...


      As a side note, anyone have a link to an Adobe compatible time math calculator? That would at least make this chore a little more accurate.
