Timecode

Now that your footage is in iMovie, you need to become familiar with the way video is measured: timecode. A movie is made up of thousands of frames, so clips are measured in terms of minutes, seconds, and frames.

In NTSC video (the standard for television in North America), 30 frames equals 1 second; so, for example, a timecode value of 1:23:15 is equal to one minute, twenty-three and a half seconds.
