Premiere Pro Exporting Markers with Incorrect Timecode Display

Hello everyone,

 

I am a new Premiere Pro user, my research group and I are using the program to label different parts of videos as different exercises. We are currently doing this using the Markers system, so we can have a start and end timecode to use as "ground truth" for assigning different portions of sensor data to different types of exercises. Therefore, I believe we want these markers to be exported as CSVs with drop-frame timecodes, because I have read that drop-frame is more representative of real time. 

 

Our one issue is that for some of us, the timecode is always exported as non-drop frame. For me personally, I was able to fix this issue by going into Modify --> Timecode --> Display format --> 59.94 drop frame (the videos were recorded on a GoPro as "60fps", although apparently this really means 59.94) and then re-exporting the markers as a CSV, in which the timecodes are in drop-frame. However, for other groups members, this strategy does not work, and the markers are still exported in non-drop frame even after changing the timecode settings to 59.94 drop-frame. We have also tried going to Preferences --> Media --> Indeterminate Time Base and changing it to 59.94 drop-frame, but this doesn't seem to make a difference either. 

 

My question is: is this a common bug, or are we missing something? Also, I am using Prem. Pro 2019 and they are using the 2020 version, would that make a difference? I don't believe the platform used makes a difference, since it works for me on a Mac and does not work for my PI using a Mac. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated, thanks!
