Lesson 16. Finishing and Outputting > Making a Timecode Window Burn

Making a Timecode Window Burn

Often during the editing and output process, someone will request a screening tape of the current version of the sequence with a visual timecode superimposed on top of the image. This visual timecode display is sometimes called a timecode burn-in or window burn. A window burn of your sequence is helpful when others need to screen your sequence and provide feedback referencing precise locations, or when you're working with a deck that cannot read timecode from the tape.

In Final Cut Pro, the visual timecode, or window burn, is created by applying the Timecode Reader filter. Since the objective is to have a visual timecode forevery clip in the entire sequence, you will first nest the sequence, then apply the filter.
