Working with Timecodes

Timecodes allow identification of the start and end of video files as well as individual frames. The End and Out events are related to the end of the respective frame. All the other events Start, In, current time, etc. are at the beginning of the respective frame.

If you mark the same frame as In and Out, the duration of the segment will be 1 frame. That is why if you navigate to the end of a clip, the End mark is always displayed 1 frame greater than the current time.

The following timecodes are displayed in the player:

Timecode current

The current playback position.

Timecode In Out

The In-Out range.

Timecode duration

The end timecode.
