Does anyone know how to switch the Playhead Position counter back to an indication of the length of time on the edit track?
Right click on the playhead position.
That's not working for me. I only get 'Frames' as an option.
If you have a very low framerate in your sequence you will only get frames and not timecode.
Ok, this won't be super helpful, as I am at work and away from Premiere Pro, but I found a way to switch it back to time. There is a menu option somewhere that does it. I don't remember where but I think it was on the main menu at the top of the window, and I don't remember what the menu option was called, but it is definitely possible.
Just keep hunting through the menus. It's there!
Thanks for the hint! Just right-click on the Timeline ruler and deselect 'Show Audio Time Units' - this changes cursor key behaviour back to frames.
Thank you. It works for me.
Do it like this. Right click on the Sequence tab and unselect "Show audio time unit". Did you solve the problem?
Genius!!!! Worked for me too. Very Grateful!
-Main Menu > Sequence > Sequence Settings >Display format > 29.97 FPS with drop frame or not as you like.
- if at Display format you just find "Frames" .. Make timebase "at the top of the current menu" > 60fps If it, not 60, Then back it. == You will find 29.97 FPS with drop frame or not options appeared.
