"Runtime is just flat out better than the old way." - InPoint

From sleazy reality shows to prestige Hollywood feature films, Runtime simplifies the workflow of editors everywhere. Throwing out the decades old "timecode calculator" model, Runtime does only the tasks post-production professionals need most – with none of the other cruft. Keep track of act times. Calculate what percentage each act is of the total. Figure total run time, total content time, and how far over or under time the project is.

Runtime is an easy and fun way to keep track of your film, tv or radio project.

• calculate Total Runtime or Total Content Time
• automatically figures how over or under time a project is
• visually see your timings with the bar graph
• email timings to co-workers with one tap
• support for multiple projects
• 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 59.94 and 60 fps all supported
• the least annoying timecode entry you'll find in the App Store!
• timer for timing segments live on set
• a no-nonsense tool for professionals

Editors, producers, preditors, and post supervisors all over the world have embraced Runtime's simple solution to a complex problem.

PLEASE NOTE: Runtime was created for editors who add times together to get a total. Need timecode multiplication? Timecode division? Runtime isn't for you.

A must have for professional editors

I’m an editor cutting network reality shows and this app allows me to keep an accurate running time of the show and share act breakdowns with a click of a button. Soooo much better that the Avid calculator!

Essential post-production tool

I edit a syndicated talk show. This tool is an essential part of our day, keeping all us editors in sync as we work on different acts to get the show to time for air. I’ve recommended it to colleagues on other talk shows too.

Excellent app!!

This is a great app! Very handy for editors and producers. I have one suggestion though. Can you add a feature to include the tv breaks separately? The same way you can choose the number of segments. Thank you!
