    Dear Group:

    I am trying to upload some video I shot, WITH the time and date
    displayed, to Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0. So far I am not finding a
    way to have the date and time transfered and displayed in the clips on
    the timeline. Am I missing something? Or is it not possible to do
    this. Please Help!!!!

    Thanks!

    Kenny

    Use the free DVdate from http://paul.glagla.free.fr/dvdate_en.htm to do
    this.

  3. Hi Kenny,

    The time stamp is transferred to your PC together with sound and sight. It
    is contained in your AVI-file, however it normally isn't displayed. In my
    editing program (Pure Motion EditStudio 5) there is a special title function
    for making it visible. Look for something similar in Adobe Premiere Elements
    and if it isn't there, search the Internet for stand-alone utilities. I am
    certain there is freeware or shareware available but I cannot recall the
    name.

  6. Many thanks for posting that link - I downloaded last night and it does the
    job.

    Previously having asked the same question (several years ago), on the few
    occasions I wanted to put the MiniDV time stamp onto video for record
    purposes, I did it by enabling date on camcorder, and then capturing onto a
    VHS deck. (I use Ulead VideoStudio 9 for post capture editing etc.)
