Quicktime viewer with frame level time display
on May 17, 2016 at 3:47:07 pm

In working with my creative partner, who doesn't have AE, we often need to make editing decisions that require timing at the frame level. Quicktime Player and VLC only display time to the nearest second. Can anybody suggest a player that displays minutes:seconds:frames?

Thanks

Please tell me you're not trying to use AE for editing.

If you're actually making video editing decisions, use a video editing application.

To answer your question directly, I can't think of any viewer that displays HH:MM:SS:FF. I can think of a ton of editing applications that are easily up to the task, however. Use an editing app as a viewer.

Dave, come on. You have to make decisions in After Effects work, too, sometimes at the frame level. Play nice.

A quick Google yields the following:

Ya' Dave play nice. Actually we're needing to make some decisions as to exactly where we will start some video footage within an AE comp. But we need a time resolution better than 1 sec to make the choice. Isn't that editing?

The fix here is to install Quicktime 7 on my partner's machine. It does indeed report duration in absolute frames.

Thanks all

Quicktime Player 7 has a timecode view. Also Scratch Play is pretty advanced and free.

Well, I'll be dipped in Drano -- you CAN get time code in Quicktime. It's right there in the preferences. I never knew it was there!

Sorry, everybody! I was dead wrong on this matter.
