Premiere Source Timecode Burn

I was watching the entertaining conform Renderdome yesterday, (congrats to @hildebrandtbernd and @bryanb for a great job under pressure) and was feeling the pain @Jeff was talking about getting source timecode to display in premiere. While I wish adobe had something better built in, I created an effect preset for myself a while ago that I wanted to share with everyone if they find themselves in that spot.

Add a transparent video clip to a layer, then drop this preset onto it. It will then display the source name and source timecode of v1 and v2. It works best without nested clips and Multi-cams need to be flattened.
It’s not perfect, but it’s saved a lot of headache durning conforms with edits I’ve prepped from premiere.
Timecode Source (3.2 KB)

Hope it helps!


Amazing! Thanks for sharing, will try it

Awesome. I’ll be sending this to my editors.

Great. I’m literally sitting here wondering why 1/2 the conform offline ref has random code with no relation to the source clips.
