I know of no way to change the Timeline TimeCode display from SMPT, i.e. hours;minutes;seconds;frames.
In PrPro, you can toggle between SMPT and Audio Units (Sample-Rate for Audio), but I have never seen even that in PrE.
How is the "seconds" displayed in that one Timeline? Are you sure that it is not SMPT too?
If I am understanding your question correctly, in the Premiere Elements workspace, you want to go to Edit Menu/Project Settings/General.
There you will see a field for "Display Format".
Choices for "Display Format" include:
In the NTSC World
30 fps Drop-Frame Timeline (Default)
30 fps Non-Drop-Frame Timecode
In the PAL World
25fps Timecode (Default)
Please let us know if that is what you are asking about.
My time line now reads in frames IE 48068. I don't want it that wasy. I don't know how it got that way, it was in h:m:s;f. I want to get it gback so I can know how long you program is.
Thanks for the replys.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Some how it got set to Frames. I looked at the other program I was editing and saw it was set to "30fps Drop Frame timecode". I made the change and it worked. It did need a re start.
Thanks again for the swift reply.
