    Odd time frame

    A friend of mine has been invited to show a video work in Buenos Aires. They want to add subtitles in Spanish and have asked her for a "script" and a timing list.  The format they have asked for is this: 1:00:00:31,000 --> 00:00:34,000.  We cannot figure out what the comma and three zeros at the end mean.  Can anyone help decipheer this?

    Re: Odd time frame

    I've never seen that in any software or tape deck. Which meand it is either:

    1) Someone is clueless

    2) Someone made an error

    3) The facility places tape numbers in those three digits. Meaning tape number 237's timecode is 1:33:04;17,237.

    That looks similar to the format of an SRT or VTT file...a sort of closed-captioning for YouTube and other online formats.

    Instead of frames, they use thousands of seconds (the last three digits).
