I’ve been looking for the text filter option to display the time of the video file, but can’t find anything anywhere.
I have found the following options, but I would like to display the time associated with the file rather than the local time, or the timecode of the frame. Apologies if this has been asked before, I have searched the forum but couldn’t find a similar issue.
#createdate# - Best guess of file creation date
#smpte_df# - SMPTE drop-frame timecode of the frame
#smpte_ndf# - SMPTE non-drop-frame timecode of the frame
#timecode# - same as #smpte_df#
#frame# - frame number of the frame
#filedate# - modification date of the file (GMT)
#localfiledate# - modification date of the file (local)
I’m assuming you want the current duration of the clip but not the frame part.
Not sure if the frame part can be cut out, but if placing the count offset to the right is acceptable,
a work around is to select the #TIMECODE# option then offsetting it as shown below.
This will then only make the hours, minutes and seconds visible.
Thanks for your reply. I perhaps should have been a bit clearer, I’m looking for a way to put a time stamp on the clip that relates to the time on the device when the clip was recorded. For example, I began recording at 14:34, and would like to make this time visible on the clip.
I’m not sure it is possible, or if there is a text filter option that exists for this purpose. #createdate# is close, but I’d like the time instead.
Thanks Brian, this is almost what I am looking for! Can the code also allow the time to change as the clip plays? E.g. Clip starts at 13:44 and ends at 13:47 and the text filter is true to this time change?
Apologies if I’m not being awfully clear, it’s quite tricky to describe.
