I'm working in PowerDirector 14 and at the minute marks extra time is being added to my video. For example a clip ends at the 00:59;00 second mark and the next item is a title that lasts for exactly 3 seconds but instead of the title ending at 1:02;00 it ends at 1:02;04. I have no idea where the extra 00;04 comes from and an extra 00;04 is being added every time I cross an additional minute. None of the clips have a duration that does not end on an exact second. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Because you have the timescale for the timeline as drop frame timecode. Go to pref > General and change "Use drop frame timecode:" to No and then you won't see that effect if that's what you'd like. The timecode separator will also change to a colon vs a semi-colon so you know.

Thank you. That fixed it. I've used PowerDirector for a few years now and never noticed that before.
