After Effects Marker Times

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey.

At the moment, I am making some kinetic type. Up until this point, I was just laying it out in photoshop, and I put some markers into audacity for the lyrics of the song I am doing, as I imagined that AE would not be able to display the waveform as well as Audacity. Anyway, now I am trying to put markers into After Effects based on the information about where they are in Audacity. However, when I put the times in AE, they appear as slightly different times. What do those semicolons mean? and is there a way to make it so that it is in standard time?

Here is a picture of what I am talking about:


Thanks.

Hey dude I used after effects heavily for a compositing class and its pretty fun once you get the hang of it. the farthest to the right numbers are frames and that depends on how many frames per second you set your composition to. the semicolons just differentiate from frames to seconds to minutes to hours so it looks like this

hours;mins;seconds;frames

and since your base is 30 that means you'll have 30 frames per second.
I'm not really sure if there is a way to get it converted perfectly to time but just try it in between the second before and after and every 4 frames or so and the timing should look right. also make sure your RAM preview settings are at your compositions fps(frames per second) which looks like 30
