    Timecode in Source Window

    Level 1
      I am using a project I edited in Vegas to help me learn Premiere better and I noticed something strange. My footage is an hour long made up of 5 clips (different lengths). I have the completed Vegas project open on my laptop as a reference while I'm cutting it again in Premiere on the desktop. In the Vegas trimmer window (like the Source window) I can see the timecode from the tape. On the 5th clip it doesn't start at 0:00:00, it starts at 49:30 and shows the timecode from the camera. In Premiere's Source window, each clip starts at zero. These were only captured once and I just moved them from the laptop to an external drive. Is there a setting to display the camera timecode? I'm so used to keeping notes during an interview that correspond the the time I see in viewfinder. The only other thing I could think of is that maybe since it was originally captured in Vegas, the timecode will only show in Vegas? That would be weird. Any insight would be appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Ben
