Select appropriate timecode for output
time:code:verter is designed to convert incompatibly/inconsitently written timecodes into Premiere Pro's timecode (hh:mm:ss:msms) for easy copy and pasting.
Hover over any element on the left to get instructions/info about it here.
Time code options
[hh:]MM:SS - This is (hours:)minutes:seconds, the hours are optional hence the brackets. You can input as 00:00:00 and/or 00:00.
HH:MM - This is hours:minutes(:seconds), the seconds are optional hence the brackets. You can input as 00:00:00 and/or 00:00.
You don't need to have the double digits, for example you can write 0:0:0 or 1:20:03 or any other combination of single and double digits.
Each inputted timecode needs to be separated by either space or a line break i.e 00:00 00:00.
The separator between hours, minutes and seconds does not need to be a colon, time:code:verter will automatically convert periods, hyphens, underscores and/or forward slashes into colons so you don't have to. time:code:verter should also automatically remove rogue colons (i.e leading or ending colons, or double/triple colons).
hh:mm:ss:msms - This will output as hours:minutes:seconds:milliseconds which is Premiere's default timecode.
frames - This will output as frames, you'll need to input the frames per second (fps) into the box next to the selector.
Just click to 'convert' to run the conversion and the results will replace these instructions you're reading right now. There is an error checker that runs ahead of the conversion to check for errors in the input box, those errors will be displayed above the instructions when they occur and should give some insight into what the issue could be.
I've made a simple autohotkey script as a compampanion to time:code:verter that works with premiere. It's triggered with ctrl+win+v, which will then paste what you've copied in this case your time stamp and move the playhead and cut it automatically (using ctrl+k).
