Description:

Pomfort FrameCalculator is a little helper for video and film production professionals. It features a genuine expression-based calculation engine for timecodes and together with its additional conversion features it is a powerful tool for post production.

Calculations are entered into FrameCalculator as expressions. Within an expression you can:

• add and subtract timecodes and frame numbers,
• multiply timecodes with rational numbers,
• divide timecodes into fractions,
• use brackets for grouping of sub-expressions and
• convert timecodes to frame numbers and back.

Examples for the syntax of FrameCalculator's expressions and results:

100+100 = 200 frames or 00:00:08.08 in 24fps
1:01+1:05.10 = 00:02:06.10
00:00:01.05|24*10 = 00:00:12.02 in 25fps
(100+01:50.21) /2 = 1380 frames in 24 fps or 00:00:57.11 in 25fps

Pomfort FrameCalculator can convert the results of calculations into disk space usage and network transfer time of various digital formats and into footage of different film materials.

Pomfort FrameCalculator has been succesfully used in various post production facilities all over world for the last 5 years. It is now available as a free download in Apple's Mac App Store.

Amazing. - I can do this in my head but having a calculator for it is pretty awesome. Very smooth application.

Doesn't calculate drop frame - You set it to calculate 29.97 drop frame. You add 2:28 and :15 and you get 2:43 +:20 and you get 3:03. I expect a TC calculator that's set to 29.97 drop to not produce a result with 43 frames in it.

Good Idea - Needs Work - I should be able to type in 01020304 and the program should know that is 01:02:03:04 It doesn't! Every editing program does that, this program is non standard.

only 30fps! - only supports frame rates up to 30fps.... Why go though all the hoops writing a programm exclusively for lower fps?

Good concept, bad execution - As an editor I am used to entering timecode numbers in terms of minutes, seconds, and frames. With this program you need to use commas to separate between these; there needs to be an option to automatically parse an entered number based on the number of digits entered, instead of having the program automatically convert a "time" to frames. Also, the estimated file size feature is nice but it would be much better if we could customize the bit rates to different compression schemes. For instance, MPEG-2 CBR or XDCAM.

Review by Cwfeldmann

Needs a Few things but has already proved to be helpful - So Once I downloaded this it was pretty slick although my frist instinct was to write a time code as 75542 and was surprised that I couldn't do that but I wrote it out the other way and then was a bit confused at how it calculates it's frames but got what I needed. This does need a 60fps format though, I work in broadcast and we always always always edit in 60 and so I have to do some more math in my head which is kinda annoying to get this to work. Simple and cool app, great help, could be more helpful.
