Use the Set Time format symbol to change Elapsed timestamps. You may want to use this format symbol when you need to synchronize timestamps with a videographer. When you insert the Set Time format symbol, CATalyst starts the timestamp beginning from the line where you insert the format symbol and continues forward through the file. To apply the time starting with a specific line, insert the Set Time format symbol at the beginning of the line. If you insert the Set Time format symbol in the middle of a line, the time begins with the next line. Case CATalyst only displays the time in Edit when Elapsed format is selected.
NOTE: When using the Set Time format symbol, the timestamps for that job will be in Elapsed. If you need to print out the job, create an ASCII, etc., make sure to set the timestamps to elapsed.
In a job, place your cursor on the line where the time needs to be changed and then press View, Show, Timestamps (Alt-v, s, p).
In the Show Timestamps dialog box, click the radio button next to Elapsed to display timestamps in Elapsed format then click OK.
Now click Edit, Insert, Insert Format Symbol (Shift-F4). From the format symbol list, double click on Set Time.
The Set Time dialog box displays. In the Enter Time field, type the hours, minutes, and seconds fields as necessary to adjust the time, then click OK.
To remove the format symbol, place your cursor on the line where you inserted the Set Time format symbol and click View, Panes, Reveal Codes (Ctrl-Shift-r) to open the Reveal Codes.
Click on the Set Time format symbol in the Reveal Codes and press the Delete key.
