Video Clip Duration Runtime

Is it possible to see the elapsed time and remaining time of a clip playing through the dashboard?


  • Hello @atomicpicnic,

    Have you tried to extend the panel on the right of the dashboard. ?

    There you can access to a time panel where you can see the progression of your medias and display their elapsed or remaining time.

    I hope this will help.

    I made an app with a help from my friend. 
    It reads the remaining time of the video and displays it. You can run it on your network or the same machine as Millumin.
    Get it from here:

    Setting up:
    From Interactions, choose Manage devices, from there: OSC- tab
    check both boxes "API feedback" and "Enable".
    To machine field, here the IP of the remote machine you have the clock app running, if you run this on the same machine than Millumin, "localhost" will do. Port is 8000.

    You have to rename the layers you want to monitor as "time" (without " ") you can select multiple layers, but if there are multiple videos playing at the same time, it will not work.

    There is a different display mode for videos that have the last frame frozen.

    If it gets stuck, hit any key to reset.

    When you have everything running, you can close the MAX console window, that is there just for troubleshooting, and to see that the OSC messages are coming in.

    I'm happy to hear any feedback

  • Hello @dnny,

    Thank you for sharing this tool.
    I edited your post so your download URL is ok (even with extra spaces).

    We're happy to see that OSC API can serve so different purposes !
