Description

Why do we have timecode at all? We take it for granted, but what's the big deal with timecode anyway? Before timecode, film editors used Edgecode (Kodak - 1919) to identify individual pictures on a film reel. With the increased use of videotape in the 1950s, this editing became more of a challenge because there was no way to visually see what frame you were on when trying to make an edit, so tools were developed to assist with this.
