You can "burn" (overlay) metadata information on your frames during playback or on the rendered output. For example, selecting the Standard burn-in preset in SpeedGrade superimposes the following information on the footage:
- Current frame number
- Location on disk of current sequence
- Native time code of current frame (assuming the information exists in the header of the file format you’re using)
Including burn-in information on rendered output can be useful when creating proxy media for offline editing or dailies for review.
- When setting the rendering options in the Output panel, select a burn-in preset from the menu.
- In the Flash Burn-In For text box, set the number of frames to display the burn-in information. The default setting is 0, meaning burn-in information is included on all rendered frames.
