I have a video clip in shotcut that I would like to put a timer on EXCEPT I plan on running it at a faster duration. Since the timer filter only displays actual seconds since the clip began I’d like to use the HTML text to subtract the current timecode from the timecode I know that clip starts at.
Is there a keyword I can use to access the current timecode such as the #timecode# that the simple text filter has?
Hi Hudson555x, thanks for the response but it doesn’t quite address what I’m trying to do I believe if I’m reading your instructions correctly. I have a video clip that I want the timer to record on, but I need the clip to play at a faster rate (let’s say 4x) I want the time to correctly show that after 1 second of the clip playing 4 seconds have passed in movie time.
Since the timer only shows real time that has passed and doesn’t have an option to factor in the speed I was looking for a way to subtract the #timecode# value from a fixed time code stamp (the time code I know that clip starts at. I don’t believe simple text allows for subtraction so I was trying to access the timecode stamp in HMTL.
Worst case scenario I’m going to export the video clip at normal speed with the timer filter and then import that clip back in and speed it up. I was just hoping for something a little more direct
