Visualizing Timecode in the Unreal Editor
To see the actual timecode values being used by the Unreal Engine while you're working in the Unreal Editor, use the Timecode Provider panel. You can find this panel in the main menu under Window > Developer Tools > Timecode Provider.
It displays the current timecode, the timecode provider (the source of the timecode values), and the number of timecode frames that are being generated within each second. You can dock this panel anywhere in the UI of the main Level Editor.
Alternatively, you can use the following console command:
You'll see the values printed in the Unreal Editor viewport, in HH:MM:SS:FF format:
If you have the Unreal Engine set up to adopt timecode from an input signal, or to genlock to a video signal, you'll also see the source of the timecode and genlock. For example:
You can use this command to confirm that the Unreal Engine is generating frames at the rate you're expecting, and that it's using the same timecode values as your input video.
