timecode genarator visual ?

Postby pele2010 » Tue Nov 25, 2014 8:35 pm

Hi all,

i was wondering if it is possible to create a timecode generator. One that is recordable .
It would be great for all kind of stuff.
You could visually measure the delay or latency of 2 computers
And you could actually use it for creating quit nice visuals too.

i generate my time codes with after effects but i am dreaming of a generator inside of MD8.

Anybody out there that helps me with this little project ?

specs:
generates numbers from 00:00:00:00 to 99:99:99:XX (depends on Framerate) (time can be altered)
can be overlaid
font can be selected
font size change
framerate can be selected (not a must but nice)
Box can be around or not

Anyone that knows how to do the timecode in QC or in python ?

Maybe this could help to implement it into MD8 ....

Can´t find a QC timecode....

would be greate to get some help on this.

This is just a receiver for QC, but Vezér can send MIDI timecode: http://cogevj.hu/forums/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1944#p5641

Thanxs Deepvisual,

it´s good to know this source.

the idea was not to use a video source. It would be great it the Tc generates.
basically it would be great if we could generate numbers or timecodes from
within a module.

anyone that knows if this is possible with freeframes ?

thanxs

. 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 ?
