Final Cut Pro Tip #045

Use Timecode in Quicktime

In the 7.1.6 update to QuickTime, Apple was kind enough to give us the ability to view timecode right inside of the application. This is a really nice feature, because FCP editors do not have to export a window burn for client review any longer. As long as the QuickTime move retains it’s timecode track any user will be able to select the timecode as the numerical display.


While not only a major time saver, this new feature brings an extra touch of professionalism to the already great QuickTime player.  And yes, the feature is available in the free player, the pro version is not needed.
