Tip #1260: How to Burn Timecode Into Video
This generator can display either project or source clip timecode.
Final Cut Pro provides a fast way to add timecode to your review videos using a generator.
Add Generator > Elements > Timecode to the top layer of your project. Final Cut will automatically superimpose it over all lower video layers.
In the Video Inspector, you can change:
- Whether to display project or source clip timecode
- The position of the timecode
- Font, size and color
- Background color
- The starting timecode number
- The label that appears to the left of the timecode (“Fly-Fishing” in the screen shot).
This feature makes it easy for both you and the people reviewing your videos to be sure you are talking about the same point of your project.
