I am filming a production process and would love to be able to display time of day as the video is playing.
I can see this info while editing, but I don't know if iMovie'11 will let me display this info onto the movie itself? I need to pass these clips to someone who doesn't have any editing tools, but they will be interested to review the events on the tape relative to the time of day that they occurred.

It would be cool if iMovie had a title effect that 1) displays time and date info, 2) let's the user edit the format of the displayed date and time, and finally, 3) lets the user move this title information to a location in the tape that won't obstruct the critical elements of the movie.

    There is a date and time title that you can use, but I do not think it shows seconds.
