i'm making a small video that's only 2 minutes ling, but my timeline is 7 hours long. this is my first time ever using premiere, so i'm really confused. i looked for stray frames a couple dozen times, didn't find anything. help 😞

Try a different export setting from devices and check the "Share Workarea Bar Only" checkbox:

This will help you export only a small portion of the clip.

 

Also, regarding the original issue why timeline is appearing as 7 hrs, please check other tracks as well and make sure no other media is present on Track 4 or Track 5. Sometimes, the media is not directly visible on the timeline but scrolling on different tracks give us a clearer picture.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav

What happens if you press the backslash \ key (above the Enter key on your keyboard) to display your entire movie on your timeline? Do you see a 2 minute timeline or a 7 hour timeline?

You have stray frames out there, whether you can see them or not.

 

This tutorial shows you how to remedy this situation.

If Steve tutorial does not shed a light on the mystery post screenshot of timeline.

 

Are you sure you are reading 7 hours.

00.00.00.00 means hours, minutes, seconds, frames.

Hello,
Please share the screenshot of the timeline. Also, try to change the workarea bar to change the timeline duration. This will help you re-adjust the timeline duration. Let me know if this was helpful.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav

Might have dropped multiple long clips in the timeline which expands the timeline.

 

It says 7 hours but you actually timeline is between the two vertical in and out point on the far left.

 

I have grumbled before about the color schema Elements uses.

In between WAB should be a dark color so it stands out and the rest a lighter color.

The work area bar determines what part of the timeline you want to export: also should be check in the export settings.
