. i suppose if you want to dedicate a layer to the task, you could just write to the Text Module based on the position of the timePostiion of a different layer…
. it looks like you can access number of frames, fps, length in the 'info_layer_media_****' keywords and determine the position via 'direct_layer_media_timePosition' (as a percentage of the total frames) then convert that to HH:MM:SS:FF - but, it would speed up/slow down based on the video clip speed and perhaps performance of Modul8 (but, it would work in reverse as well)
. is that what you're thinking of ?
