Use a timecode counter

When sending your project for review, it can be useful to superimpose timecode over it, making it easier for the reviewer to precisely specify sections when providing feedback.

Insert and configure a timecode counter

  1. Open the Generators Browser by clicking the Generators button in the toolbar.

  2. Drag the Timecode generator above the primary storyline.

    Usually the Timecode generator clip is placed at the start of the project, but you can place it anywhere you want it to appear and adjust its length to match the project’s length.

  3. Configure the Timecode settings in the Generator inspector.
