    jumping frame counter and thumbnail offsets in PE3

    Level 1
      I've been creating thumbnail offsets for my DVD markers in PE3 by subtracting the DVD marker placement from the current frame counter. One was off by two frames, and I couldn't figure out why, until I stepped frame-by-frame. The frame counter jumps from 00;31;59;29 to 00;32;00;02! Why is this? The first number is where the DVD marker and transition are, but I've never seen this before.

      Also, is there an easier way to compute the thumbnail offsets than doing the math? I know you can slide the offset with the mouse, but that's rather small and difficult to control. Is there a way to tell it to "use the current frame"?

      Thanks,
