Navigate a video using timecode

You can change the display of the playback controls to show the elapsed time, frame count, or timecode (depending on the characteristics of the video).

Some media files display a timecode—an 8-digit code (00-00-00-00)—in the playback controls, instead of the 4-digit code showing the remaining time. The timecode shows source time information about a specific frame or recorded point, like the time of the original recording, or the frame number. When navigating a project, you can use the timecode to navigate to an exact location of a frame in the media file.

  • Navigate to a specific time-coded frame: Choose View > Time Display > Go To Timecode, then enter the timecode you want.
