Super newbie question.

I have seen 2 different formats for time. Examples:

1. 00:01:05.10
2. 00:01:05+10

What is the difference? I think the .10 and +10 are not milliseconds. Are they frame counts?

Yes. They are differing conventions. The + frame delimiter is regarded as signifying 24 frame media. You may also see 00:01:05:10 or 00:01:05;10 which can be used to refer to non-drop frame or drop frame media with 30 fps nominal timebases. The . delimiter is a general purpose, one-size-suits-all convention.

To further add to the confusion, the original standard timecode format was 00:01:05:10.

Just additional information:

Here you'll find a PDF provided by RWAV which explains the differences in a 24fps (Mixed Rates) project:


To understand the document, it needs some basic knowledge about standard framerates and methods of framerate conversion.
