Video Timecodes
A timecode is quantity of time in the format hour:minute:second:frames, commonly used in video editing. You should specify your desired frame rate (fps) when creating a timecode.
You can add/remove units of time or frames from a timecode
1
03:10:20:05 at 30 fps + 50 frames | 03:10:21:25
2
00:10:20:50 @ 60 fps + 10 minutes | 00:20:20:50
3
3h 2m 25s 10 frames at 24 fps + 1 hour 12 minutes | 04:14:25:10

Or covert a timecode into a quantity of frames, or from a quantity of frames into a timecode
1
00:30:10:00 @ 24 fps in frames | 43,440 frames
2
43,440 frames @ 24 fps | 00:30:10:00

Add timecodes together, and subtract them from each other
1
03:10:20:05 @ 30 fps + 03:10:20:010 | 06:20:40:15
2
03:10:20:05 at 12 fps - 00:20:35:00 | 02:49:45:05

• When adding or subtracting timecodes, you only need to specify the desired frame rate for one of the time codes in the operation
• The other timecode will use the specified frame rate automatically
• If you do not specify a desired frame rate when creating a timecode, a default frame rate of 24 fps (commonly used in film production) will be used
• You can override the default frame rate by defining a global variable defined in terms of fps

Frames and fps

Perform calculations using frames and fps (frames/second) units
1
30 fps × 3 minutes | 5,400 frames
2
15.6k frames / 24 fps | 650 s
