See timecode in a floating window in Final Cut Pro X

In Final Cut Pro 10.4.4, see source and project timecode in expandable, floating windows.

You can see source timecode—the timecode originally embedded in the source clip, and the project timecode —the time elapsed since the project’s starting timecode. You can have multiple timecode windows open at once, and you can drag them to a secondary display.

See source timecode

The source timecode window shows the names and source timecode of all the clips at the current playhead position in the timeline, starting with the topmost clip. Showing source timecode makes it easy to match or locate specific moments in a source clip.

To open the floating source timecode window, choose Window > Source Timecode. You can resize the source timecode window.

You can show the names of the clips and their roles at the current playhead position in the source timecode window. Click the down arrow in the window, then choose Clip Name and Clip Roles.

To change the window's opacity, click the down arrow in the window, then choose an option.

See project timecode

To open the project timecode window in your Final Cut Pro project, choose Window > Project Timecode. You can resize the project timecode window.

To change the window's opacity, click the down arrow in the window, then choose an option.

You can also see the project timecode along with the source timecode in the source timecode window. In the source timecode window, click the down arrow and choose Project Timecode.

Resize timecode windows

You can resize the source and project timecode windows:

  • To resize the timecode and text, drag a corner of the source or project timecode window.
  • To show more or fewer rows, drag the bottom edge of the source timecode window.
  • To provide more or less space for the clip names, drag the right edge of the source timecode window.

Copy and paste timecode data

You can copy source or project timecode data from clips in your project and paste it to a spreadsheet, an edit decision list (EDL), or an email. Show the source or project Timecode window, Control-click a timecode entry, then choose an option:

  • To copy the timecode for the item you clicked, choose Copy Timecode.
  • To copy name of the item you clicked and its timecode, choose Copy [item name].
  • To copy everything in the timecode window, choose Copy All.
