Larry Jordan – LarryJordan.com

The floating timecode panel provides real-time display of project durations.

This is the full-size floating timecode panel in Premiere.

Premiere has a floating timecode panel which simplifies tracking project durations and selections.

This panel displays the timecode for:

  • The current location for the playhead
  • The total duration for the active sequence
  • The duration between the current timeline In and Out

To display this panel, go to Window > Timecode.


If you are tight on space, go to the small “pancake” menu in the top right corner and select Compact. Same information in less space.

    And if you right click the panel you get all kinds of options on what information you can display in the panel and it can be docked like any other panel in PP. I keep mine docked on top of my timeline in the middle of my monitor, so much easier to read the larger TC numbers from it, rather than the program monitor window.
