Cue time display

Post by gooze » Thu Feb 14, 2008 4:10 pm

Cuetiming in seconds when it counts down. 120 seconds. Display in the Time coulumns is displayed in minutes 2:00. Could this be the same?

I actually prefer the minutes. Think 10min sunset cue, Stage manager asks you "How long to go?". Are they going to prefer to hear "450 seconds" or "7min, 30sec".

I suspect the latter.
...and for more entertainment industry trivia and useless facts, just ask:

I forgot to also tell my preferred time display, which is indeed (for that reason) the display in min:sec.

Bump.
It was added, but somehow not implemented yet...
Really would like to see this.
