    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!!!!

    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.)
