After voting up the 'Time Picker' suggestion in Filemaker's new Product Ideas, I thought perhaps I could just simplify the method of input without a picker and without punctuation.
- enter times using only numbers.
- AM/PM is determined by the Workday Starting Hour.
- use punctuation to override.
- the Workday Starting Hour only considers hours 1-12 right now.
- I have added a 'clamp' in the time fields auto-enter calc to the keep the start and end times logical.
Enjoy and please post any improvements
Since I could not use 10ths of seconds in FMP I’ve been converting the time and presenting it this way [Time*24**60*60]. This is fine by me, but I suppose some users might not care for it. Is there a way to reverse this in FMP — to take, i.e., 73.3 and get back 1:13.3 or 1.13.3?

First of all I have only just started experimenting with MirrorSync and overall it's a pretty slick product.
One issue I have come across is that my spoke database (on ipad) is showing time fields with values 1 hour ahead of the values in the hub database.
When I connect directly to the hub from the same iPad or from a PC then the time values are as expected.
As far as I can tell the server, PC and iPad are all configured to be in the same timezone (UTC / London).
Any advice please?

I'm trying to build a database that I can use to log video footage. I've a system that seems to be working for me so far, but there's a couple of tools that would be extremely useful to me and I can't find any way to make them happen.
Attached is an image of what it looks like at the moment.
Â I've got one entry for each film clip. I can name it, give it tags for people who appear in the clear or themes, make some notes about the type of shot and location, etc.Â Â One of the key features is the portal on the right. I go through each clip, stop at significant moments, take a frame grab, and post it in a related table table that has the frame, the time, and a short description.
At the moment I'm taking the frame grabs manually using Command-Shift-Control-4, area select, click, and then pasting that into the small container field. Then I manually enter the time and the optional description.
What I really want is a function or plug in that lets me pause the video, press a button, and be able to get the current time of a movie in a container field, and capture the current frame.
The Troi plug-in can get timecode but only from an external file and it needs to be proper timecode format, which is not part of DSLR footage. And it can't get the image of a specific frame.
Is there any way to do this? Â Thanks Adam
I've been using filemaker for quite some time and tried to use it to build a "backtimer" log for Live television applications.
however, after much searching, i cannot find a "real time running clock" function or plug in that allows a field to be updated with the "current time" in real time(system clock every second).
a script does now work for my application as i need to be able to use the database to type notes as the time calc runs in the background.
I have not been able to get a web viewer window to work because i still need a script to update the field every second.
In my search i have read several times that filemaker cannot do this.
I find this hard to believe.
Any help is much appreciated.
