Hi, there! Filmmaker here!
I think it would be so helpful if there is a SMPTE timecode added to the latest version of Pencil2D. The ruler time format that gives hh:mm:ss:ff or 00:00:00:00. Obviously, it’s incredibly vital that we keep the absolute frames in the timeline ruler but I also believe there should be a timecode placed in a box window in addition so you can read both the absolute frames and the hours (extremely unlikely), minutes, seconds and frames (from 00 to 23 since most animation is 24 fps). The reason I’m requesting this feature is because I would import the animation frames I would make in Pencil 2D as a video project in Kdenlive and organize the frames in correlation to the timeline in Pencil2D for reference. But it is so difficult for me to know where to place each frame in the timeline in Kdenlive because the ruler time format differs from that of Pencil2D. I can’t even change the ruler time format in Kdenlive from SMPTE timecode to absolute frames, which really frustrates me. Again, it would be super invaluable if that feature could be added to this program. The absolute frames ruler time format should be an option added to Kdenlive as well.
Thanks for reading! Hopefully you can help!
