I know of that feature Michael, and think it's really cool. But there are still plenty of reasons to have big burned in code.

-putting a cut up on the web for people to watch, like VIMEO.
- EASY reference to the timecode...so the producer can sit back and watch and take notes, and not squint at the small readout.
- Audio houses input the QT into their system and play back in ProTools or Logic...they can't see that information unless there is TC burn in.
- to protect your footage from being used by someone else. Give someone a list of selects of footage so they can pick what they want and then order master footage. This protects from them just using it.

Nice, Shane. But there is something even better, since QT v7. There is now a timecode track in the attributes. Enabling it tells the QT player to display the exported TC value from the sequence instead of its default stopwatch time as the player's embedded index time. This eliminates the ugly burn-in and the associated render time. Clean picture, faster workflow. My clients love it!

Well, I constantly need to keep on top of how to do things. That's how I keep myself employable. But, while I am NOT employed (such as now), I do these to keep myself busy, and to make a little money on the side.

Another great tutorial, and a reminder to people like me, that continue with old methods out of habit, that upgrading apps often means there are many more efficient ways of doing things.

How do you ever find the time to keep up with new developments and then so generously share it all with us?

Thank you.

Nice! Another good one. I, myself, always did the nesting method, but using Compressor is a really good idea...never thought of it...
