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.

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.

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

only 30fps!


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