FCP X: Floating Timecode Window

Posted on by Larry

Did you know there was a floating timecode window inside Final Cut Pro X that you can drag wherever you want, even to a second monitor?

No, I didn’t either.

But it’s there and easy to access.

Right-click the Timecode display at the bottom of the Viewer and choose Show Timecode Window.


Right-click (Control-click) inside the Timecode window and discover a variety of formatting options.

Very, very cool.

    Hi Larry
    This isn’t a default option, but one that’s added with FX Factory’s free Timecode plugin.

    It only works for projects/timelines, not in the browser while logging (which is too bad)
