The circle and crosshairs is what will show up if you click on a video layer to manually drag it around or resize it in the program monitor... I've not used that particular effect, so this is a total shot in the dark, but maybe under the effect settings it has particular presets for various different sizes of footage, and it's on a larger size than you're sequence (i.e., you're editing in SD and it's in HD, or you're in HD and it's in 4k) and so the numbers are there, but they're just "off screen" somewhere? Not how effects usually work, I think, but worth checking maybe?
When I apply the TimeCode Effect, I do so onto a Transparent Video Clip, on a higher Video Track.That allows me to then easily use Motion>Scale and Motion>Position (Fixed Effects in all Video Clips) to Scale and Position the TimeCode.
My guess is that your Position is out of the Frame, or that the Scale is too small. I'd look at the former first, and Position within the Frame.
Thank you for your reply. What you said sounds reasonable, but I think I
found what’s wrong. I Googled “Premiere CS5 problems with Lion,” (I just
recently upgraded) and found that Adobe lists five problems Premiere CS5
has with Lion. One of them – just my luck – is that the Timecode effect no
longer displays. (For me it’s an essential tool.) Apparently there is no
fix on its way for CS5. The only fix listed is in Premiere CS5.5, in the
5.5.2 update. I called Adobe, and they confirm this.
Glad that you found that. I did not recall that issue, but them am a PC-only guy, so keeping up on Mac OS issues often gets lost in my feeble brain.
Thanks for that update. I will try to do a better job of remembering that issue.
well, if youre gonna upgrade better hurry...upgrade policy is a-changin...
