Is there a way to see the seconds in the time line?
I use a MacBook Pro, and Anime Studio Pro 11.2

That's a good question. I always just count the guidelines at the 'one second' intervals when I need to know the seconds, but, yeah, it seems like you should be able to change the display to timecode and other units. I think Moho can only show frames.

I've sometimes used a frame/time calculator when animating in 3D and needed to count seconds. Right now I have one in my iPad, and there are online and standalone calculators you can download.

Tip: If I need to refer to specific times on the timeline, I like to use the Markers and label them. I know that's not what you asked for but I find it helpful.

Oh, duh. I actually looked in there this morning too and didn't see it for some reason.

My excuse is I haven't had my coffee yet and I'm stickin' to that. :)
