It’s time to make time for timecode.
Premiere Pro gives you a number of different ways to work with timecode. For example, you can throw the Timecode effect on individual clips to show source timecode, or even generate your own. Use timecode to quickly jump to a specific part of your sequence by simply typing a specific time in the timeline panel. You can also create a custom timecode overlay for the Program Monitor, displaying timecode information from any or all tracks. Premiere even has a customizable Timecode panel.
One of the best ways to utilize timecode is via an overlay stamped onto your exports. This is perfect for when your sending deliverables to a client for review. With a timecode stamp, clients can quickly and easily reference any section of your project. The overlay can also serve as a watermark, preventing clients from walking away without paying. Let’s take a quick look at how to add a timecode stamp to your Adobe Premiere Pro exports.
