Time Ruler

I know that Cmd clicking on the time stamp in the left corner alternates between frames and seconds, but why are my seconds displayed like this? every other screen of the app I've seen with other users (on youtube tut's) it's a much more understandable 01s...02s....03s etc.

thanks!

    I think you might have answered your own question? When your timeline looks like that you are showing time in frames, not seconds. If you CMD + click to change the setting from frames to seconds, the whole timeline should change as well. – MBrizzle Sep 17 '14 at 21:40

Thats exactly whats happening here.You switched to frames so After Effects is showing the frame count instead of a second count. Do a Ctrl / Cmd click on the time stamp and you will get seconds:

To see all time values in the timeline simply drag the zoom slider to the right or use Alt and the mousewheel in order to 'zoom in':
