FCP X: Floating Timecode Window
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.
- Grab an edge or a corner and resize the display.
- Drag it to a second monitor, or anywhere in the interface you choose.
- Change the look of the text or background.
- Copy and paste timecode values within Final Cut, or between apps.
- Finally, click the close box, or right-click to display the menu, to make the display go away.
Very, very cool.

This isn’t a default option, but one that’s added with FX Factory’s free Timecode plugin.
Thanks! I couldn’t figure out how I overlooked this.

Thanks so much for pointing this out. Here the direct link: https://fxfactory.com/info/timecode/
This feature was added in FCPX 10.4.4.
Smile… You are correct. But, I liked this article so I decided to run it again.
It only works for projects/timelines, not in the browser while logging (which is too bad)
