    How do you change Frame time to Timecode?


      Im using a PC, and Premier Element 7.

      When I was making a video for class, i dont know what happened and the time code changes into numbers, and not the formatting of 00;00;00.

      How do i converted it back to 00;00;00?

          What time code?


          Are you looking a timecode on your video -- or on the program's interface?

            Premiere Elements 7


            From your description I can interpret it only one way....let us see NTSC Setup


            1. In Premiere Elements 7 here, the time under the monitor is displaying in Timecode 00;00;00;00. If you want that to display in frames, then hold down the Ctrl key of the computer main keyboard and click on the Timecode numbers 00;00;00;00 to switch from Timecode to Frames.




            The other way to do this...Go to Edit Menu/Project Settings/General and Display Format and switch from 30 fps Drop Frame Timecode to Frames.

            If this would be PAL setup....switch from 25 fps Timecode to Frames there.

            Note: the Timecode is represented 00;00;00;00 for NTSC and 00:00:00:00 for PAL.


            Please let us know if that worked for you.


            Thank you.
