Hi guys,

I havent used clock in my video for a long time and when I now wanted to use it, cant find it. I remember, CL had his own clock effect, came it with the PD 12 or 14, dont remember now (I have both programs). It was customisable and came with the program. Or I do remember wrongly? Or was it in Directorzone? There I havent searched yet, 'cause there are effects from users, not from CL himself.

This one I know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpNSrP6G6k0 , but I specifically looking for CL his own clock effect.

Can anyone help me with it? Search in forums 12 and 14 didnt help either.

Thanks for helping! PowerDirector 17. Windows 10

See this thread: http://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/49208.page#258328 for your answer. It's the fx timestamp you want.

Hi tomasc, thanks for reply!
Its not exactly what I was looking, but I tested it and downloaded file didnt work with my PD14 (W10).
Then I converted file as Tony recommended and result now worked in my PC (unchecked maintain aspect ratio too). Result was with the pure quality, but maybe there is an option for output quality, havent check it yet.
Question, if I need timestamp for 5 hours and more (samples were max. 60 min), how can I get it?

and if I need the same for kilometers too, maybe you have any download link for me?

Andres -

Don't you have the Time Stamp effect in the FX library?

You can set that to 5 hours (or whatever you want) & make the format HH:MM:SS.

Kilometres might be a bit tricky, since video doen't run on distance! Probably a text overlay, showing the distance covered/remaining would be the easiest way.

Cheers - Tony

Hi Tony, please help me more:
1.tried the Reverse Time and it doesnt work. Video clip is example 10 sec, time stamp below too, but no counting, no numbers too...
2. Time Stamp: cant use easy in/easy out or to use Fade transition.. is there any other possibility?

3. Any possibility to freeze the counter? Now I tried as: I took a snapshot and used Chroma key for background, but result (numbers) isnt one to one. Even, when I used opacity: number's edges on snapshot arent so sharp as originals (see attached photos)

Andres! Great job on the marathon video

... and well done getting through the run. Personally, I thought once around the island might have been enough. 42km! My knees wouldn't cope at all.

Congratulations on both counts!
