I want to show you a trick here and it has to do with time code, and I don't know if I would call time code meta data exactly. I mean it sort of is, but it's sort of inherent to the video as well. But I would say this, being aware of where you are in the clip based on time code, for instance if you are reviewing and need to take notes. That certainly is metadata in that context because it's the data that helps you get to the right point in the timeline to give your instruction. So we don't have to split hairs about nomenclature, I just want to show you this trick.
I want to open up the time code window. And there's no short cut, you just go down to Time Code. And there it is, our time code window. That's it, that's the whole thing. And you might be thinking, huh? And anywhere we go in this clip, we see the time code. Again, huh? Big deal. But think about this. If we're reviewing and maybe a whole group is sitting around reviewing, maybe it's not even a single clip, but a whole timeline. This works just like any other window, even though its purpose built for time code.
That means I can add it to any panel, and dock it anywhere. If I put it up here. Oh. All of a sudden, it seems a whole lot more useful. That is, everyone could see the time code from way across the room. And believe me, if you've ever sat around reviewing an edit with six or eight people, all trying to take time code notes, being able to make a big heads up display of the time code is pretty darn useful.
