There used to be one for version 5/6. I am not sure it's necessary, though - I believe you can calculate whatever's necessary using only native Filemaker functions.
True - essentially its just adding time.. but the tricky part is the calculation of frame rate.. ie 29.97 ndf.
it would be nice to have a program where i just put in the time and it spits out the answer.... in a perfect world haha
I'm a novice FM user, any tips on how to use the native FM functions for this??
Well, this is not something I would recommend to a beginner - but if you like, you could start with the pointers here:
BTW, if you're really using NDF, then things should be easier for you - since you can easily translate the code to an exact frame count. The real time is then = frame count/29.97 (approximately).
Great! Thanks for the help!
Do you know if that plugin works for FM 10?? i downloaded that spotting template in FM 7 and it works great. I'm curious if there is one out there for 10.
OR are you saying that FM 10 has calculation abilities for frames and time so that I can just make a formula on my own??
again thanks for the help!

I doubt it, but I haven't tried it myself.

It would probably be the same - I don't think there were any applicable new features since version 7. So, version 7 or 10 or anything in between - yes, it should be able to do the necessary calculations.
