This may be a very basic question, but I've searched extensively and cannot find an answer. My dilemma: I have a clip in the source window and want to set a duration of say, 5 seconds. I select an in-point and then hit the "+" key only to find frames as my option for duration--not timecode. Right-clicking on the timecode display reveals that I have timecode selected. Yet, I can only get a duration in frames. There has to be a simple solution to this problem.

Anyone out there who knows how to solve this problem? I'd be very grateful!

Thanks--Craig

When you enter numbers, it's not frames, but rather timecode, from the right, without separators.

To go forward five seconds, type "+500". To go forward five seconds and fifteen frames, type "+515".
