Aw, look at Tom Batiuk, all using film terms and everything! Too bad he has no idea what he’s talking about.
You know what a timecode is, Batiuk? It’s a series of numbers that are displayed on the bottom of the screen, showing the running time and the frame count. I’ve never heard of a timecode used on a trailer; typically it’s used on raw footage so the film-makers can see what happened when while they were filming a movie. It helps with the editing process, because the director can say “I like camera 3, from 15:05 to about 17. After that, camera 2 is much better.” It allows the film-makers more accuracy in choosing takes and assembling scenes.
I don’t know why you’d put it on a trailer. Maybe you’re trying to impress a hayseed douchebag, by bamboozling him with your jargon?
But that’s okay, Tom, because you know what’s not on your trailer? A timecode. It ain’t there on screen, hayseed.
To your credit, there’s not a Time Cube on there either. I guess you aren’t educated stupid.
