Hello, im using CS 5.5. By default the new composition duration window calculating input value by frame not seconds. I dont want to sound blunt so im putting a pic here.

<a href=""><img src="//" border="0" /></a>

How can i change the duration input format into seconds? It might be simple but it's not in the preference menu. Please help me.

Awaiting reply....

Create your new composition with the proper settings(save for how it counts frames) and click "OK". Now in your timeline in the upper left corner you will see the current frame, "Cntl" + click it and it will change to display timecode.

Now when you create a new comp it will default to displaying timecode rather than frame counter.
