Is there a method within Premiere Elements to overlay elapsed time or a stopwatch type function? Is there a third party "plug-in"?

Looking for some way to overlay elapsed time on track and field videos for splits, hurdle touchdown times, etc.

Thanks...

It is called Time Stretch Wink
Yes you can. There are two ways, 1. the Time Stretch tool and 2. Right click on the clip and select Time Stretch.

Chuck...thanks for the reply.

Not sure if I was real clear on my post - but I'm looking to overlay (super-impose) elasped time onto videos.

I've found a plug-in that allows overlaying the time code and date information - which is close.

What I would need is a tool that would take the time code and convert it to elapsed time.

Opps, sorry. Your right, I didn't understand the question :")

Here is a Timecode Frame Generator that might work

Chuck,

Thanks for taking the time to reply to my posts!

I didn't think I'd be the first to need this type of feature. Too bad PE doesn't include this function.

Have to play w/the TFG tonight!

There is a similar tool available in the Pro products, Premiere and After Effects, just not the Elements version.

Check out the topic at Muvipix, there are a number of suggestions there Wink

Well...

Found several ways to get the time-code overlayed onto a video - problem is - I need true elaspsed time. So the time-code (frame counts) would need to be converted into real time.

I've found a published conversion chart (http://www.trackinfo.org/videotiming.html)

<http://www.dvdate.ru> has a plug-in that you can use. It works with any video, even if it's not DV-AVI.

You can also use the WAX plug-in from <http://www.debugmode.com>. Then you need the the virtualdub plug-in "Add Frame Numbers." That also has elapsed time:

Within WAX you point to the location of the virtualdub plug-in folder.

Here is a topic about creating your own timer and a few people that share theirs (2 and 3 minutes)

PROBLEM SOLVED!

Just to follow up on my original post...

I was able to work with the folks (Ilya Topolnitsky) at DV Date (http://www.dvdate.ru/en/dvrecdate.html) - who were gracious enough to update their flagship product "DV Date" to include actual elapsed time. The plug-in is simple to use and works great!

The time overlay is easily modified (font, color, shadowing, position, etc.) - so it should work for anyone who wants to overlay elapsed time.

I have an example of the plug-in in action:

<http://www.hurdlecentral.com/Videos/DV_DATE_Test.wmv>

The video is about 10MB - as it includes a slow motion segment.

I requested that the installation of DVDate be compatible with Premiere Elements. Wallah!

Before a couple years ago it would only install in the Pro version.
