Free your Timecode


FreeTime is the large timecode window for Final Cut Pro* (Version 5.x to 7.x). It shows the current timecode from Viewer or Canvas.

The main window of FreeTime always floats above all other windows, it can be freely positioned and scaled on the attached screens.

During the work in Final Cut Pro* the window controls of the timecode window are hidden. Only the size box is always visible.
