timecode overlay, customizable

a repositionable timecode overlay, with option to edit those number's colors, size.

Sometimes I need to distribute video as an evaluation version, and being able to position timecode at will would be desirable.

I agree, this would be very useful.

I also ask for this stuff, and also some frame counter (frame number) like it is on Avidemux effects ;) sample- http://img259.imageshack.us/img259/7962/3315.png


I added support for frame number in MLT on Oct 13 (beyond latest release). So, it would not be hard to include that. Please file a bug to keep it on our todo list.

So what is with that frame counter ore timecode? Do we find them in some of next kdenlive version ore updates (after 0.7.9) ?

I will have a look at it.

In 0.8 you will be able to select between timecode (hh:mm:ss:ff) and frame count overlay in the render dialog.

i do see the overlay for having a counter go upwards BUT i'd really like an option to apply a counter going upwards BUT only for a portion of my video, to show how long a particular scene was going for. Example, in my videos I have an intro and then my main content starts so I would like the counter to start then and NOT at the beginning of the video and I'd like to be able to stop the counter at a certain part in the video which is NOT the end of the video because I have an outro as well. Can anyone help me figure this out?

The "Dynamic Text" effect allows you to overlay a timecode - which counts up relative to the start of the clip or timeline it is applied to. It can be found under "Add Effects->Misc->Dynamic Text".
