if it doesn't work, then just google itX has a generate time code function built in.
(in the Generators area under Elements)
Pop it over black (or anything you like) then crop, range and export it as a separate element you can re- use to your hearts content.
For $50 you can purchase Motion ... which is really a necessary part of FCPX. In Motion 5 there are Generators for Numbers, Time & Date and TimeCode. You can even use motion to make the effect for FCPX. Almost all the Effects included in FCPX originate and are made with Motion 5.Hey guys i'm kinda new to Final Cut pro X and i have a video in which in need to add a timer/stopwatch but i have no idea how i would add one all kinds of help would be greatly appreciated.
