Timebase

The timebase of a project determines how Premiere calculates time divisions, expressed in frames per second, or fps (Figure 18.1). The timebase shouldn't be confused with the frame rate—the rate at which the program displays frames.

Figure 18.1. You choose a timebase when you capture video, create an offline file, and specify project settings (shown here). Because Premiere uses the timebase to make time calculations, choose the correct timebase, and don't change it.
