October 2011: Be sure to read the update below!
I’ll admit – I’m a Windows user. Trust me, I want a Mac, but now isn’t the time. It’ll be here soon enough though.
So I set out today to find a time code calculator for my calculation needs, and was shocked to find that timecode calculators for Windows are extremely hard to come by. There are many for Mac (and I found one non-working one for the web) but unfortunately nothing seemed to come up for Windows.
I was fortunate enough though to find this fantastic utility (just before I got very angry): WFT Timecode Calculator. It’s based on a Palm time code calculator. It has a nice interface, it’s easy to use, etc. etc.
Check it out today and get the word out – this utility deserves to be shared!
Update (10/21/11): It’s a little over five years after I originally posted this, and it’s still one of my more popular posts! Unfortunately, the original link is broken. Never fear though, loyal readers: after a bit of searching, I was able to find the original app, and I’m happy to provide a mirror here!
I can’t verify this works, and I can’t provide support (I’m now a Mac user, as alluded to in the original post). And given that the original link is broken, I suspect the original creator has similar feelings regarding support. This is provided on a “consider yourself lucky if it works, and find another app if it doesn’t” basis.
Without further ado… download WFT Timecode Calculator.
