Timecode entry instead of seconds.

Post by Galane » Fri Oct 06, 2017 7:31 am

Would be so much easier to enter time adjustments in timecode format instead of having to convert to seconds. If you need to change the runtime of a file from 1:38:06 to 1:57:40 it would be nice to be able to simply enter 1:57:40 instead of 7060 seconds.

Would also be nice if when stretching to 7060 seconds the output wouldn't come out 6 seconds too long at 1:57:46

I presume that you are referring to this post: viewtopic.php?p=335009#p335009
As I wrote there, the correct tool for the job is most probably the "Change Speed" effect (http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/change_speed.html) and that does have the ability to to simply enter 1:57:40, and the resulting length is very accurate.
