All of my projects start at about 5 min. on the timeline. Is there a way of making this start time show on the timecode display as zero so that the timecode shows elapsed time of the project instead of time line duration. My clients watch the blueray and give their notes using the bluray counter, it would be nice if I had a display that was the same as theirs. I could use burnt in tc but this would mean rendering the whole 80 mins. I could move the project to start at zero but this would mess up the audio automation.
Top right corner of the timeline there is a little dropdown menu.
Select Time Start and adjust.
That doesn't quite work, I need zero timecode to be at 5 min timeline. That would mean the start time of the whole timeline would be at minus 5 min and it seems Premiere will not allow minus times.
I've answered it myself- put the start time as 23:55:00:00
