Finally someone did it. 🙂 Roger and the folks at CoreMelt have released a free plugin to display Source (and Record) Timecode on clips in FCP X. I’ve been playing with it for a while. It works really well, and you can’t beat the price!

And then..”After installation look for it under “C2 Gadget – Editors Tools” as Source Timecode. Drop it on your clip and you’re good to go. You can have it display only in the onscreen controls or burn in on render.”
Get it. And get their other stuff too, really great plugins. 🙂
