Time-Tracking for Premiere
I was talking to a co-worker, and we were fighting about how much time a project had taken.
Then I brought up the question: What if Premiere had a time tracking function? What if it was an automatic tracker that kept the time of workflow when you were on the Premiere screen, and you could reference that for clients and/or your own use?
I feel like this is not super important, but it really is so that you have proof of how long it takes for some projects.
Sometimes you forget to check the time you started, so it's hard to say how long it really does take for longer, more complicated projects.

Did you try checking out your autosaves that premiere does every 15 min while you're working? it's in a folder sorted out by date and hour and minutes... this could be an easy and free way to track the time spent?

This IS super important! This would be amazing. There's an app called Timely that offers this, but it's not free. Seems like something that the software would be doing already anyway, for other purposes, but could just make viewable to you.

I'd love to have this in all Adobe CC but specially in Premiere where I spend most of my working time. For a correct tracking it should only count the time when there's some activity with Premiere, because the program could be opened and in the meantime doing anything else in the computer or wherever.
Exactly what I think since years!
But I think it should be separated in: active-working time; rendering time & afk time.
This feature is a must. It will enable me to bill my client according to how much time I gave them
