So.. Im trying to make an Essential Graphics Panel that shows info on video . I have figured most of it out. Especially total frames of a clip and a counter (see image) . It works in After Effects. I use the expression "timeToFrames(thisComp.duration)" . . BUT when I move it to Premiere it breaks. I doesnt change total frames when trimming the clip in Premiere. It just stays the same which is the length set in After Effects. I guess its cause it cant "see" the length in Premiere? Maybe there is a way to do it.. or maybe Premiere has a "total frames" trick .? I cant figure it out.

There might be a scripting option for that, but not many of us know scripting here.

 

@Bruce Bullis would know of course.

 

in Premiere, the only way to know a frame count is to set the timeline to show frames not timecode.

>...timeToFrames(thisComp.duration)...

The closest analog to an AE Comp in PPro is a sequence, not a track item ('clip'), so I wouldn't expect thisComp.duration to change when you trim a clip. 


Neil's right, ExtendScript can provide that info, but I'm unfamiliar with how to access such info from within a .mogrt.
