I set up a template in CS4 a while back that used the numbers effect in conjunction with an expression (evaluating the global 'time' property as a 'time' in the numbers effect) to display duration counters. This worked fine, but now we're on CS5 the time effect is now displaying as 12hr all of a sudden.

What this means is that instead of displaying "00:00" at the beginning of the video, I'm getting "12:00AM". I can understand why you might want time to be evaluated either way, but for the life of me I can't find where to change this. I've looked everywhere I can think, including changing system settings.

Hopefully one of you clever people can tell me the really obvious thing that I've missed?
