20 Feb 14 – Timeline and Timecode displays

In the last tutorial I mentioned how I normally use frame display in the video editor, but not anymore! Find out about custom timecode formats and a change coming in Blender 2.70.

In this quick ten minute tutorial I’ll explain how to:

  • change the format of the timecode displayed in frame based editors to SMPTE (timeline, dope sheet, graph editor and VSE);
  • how to turn the frame indicator timecode on and off;
  • explain a quirk with the VSE that will be fixed in Blender 2.7; and
  • how to use the timecode with the stamp feature.
