The CS5 Timecode tutorial (http://tv.adobe.com/watch/after-effects-cs55-new-creative-techniques/ae-cs55-source-timeco de/) indicates that you can acces Media Start, Media End and Tape Name by right-clicking in the Columns section. My copy of CS5.5 (Version 10.5.0.253) does not show those options, only the In, Out, Duration etc. Does anybody else have that problem? Any ideas?
Are we talking about the project window? They'll only show up there, not in the timeline. The timeline will only use the normal in and out point info, but obey the footage source timecode.
If you post a screenshot of what you're seeing, it will help us to figure out what's wrong.
Thanks Mylenium, you are right, I thought that the "Columns" section in the timeline is where you could chose TC. Now I can see my timecode in the project window:-)
