Operating System: Mac OS X
TimeCode is widely used in Film and Video postproduction.
The Filemaker API is very limited about the format, how external functions can be defined. External functions are all of the Form External(FunctionID,parameter) where there can only be one parameter as a string. As we need often more than one parameter, we have to construct the string. If you feel bad about this, don't use this plugin, there is no other way.
You can find all functions in the formula dialog box when you define the calculation fields. The functions list has a view popup-menu whith as last entry External Functions. When you choose one function in the list, it will paste the name of the function and the word Parameter to be replaced by the list of actual parameters we will use.
This string will mostly a list of fields separated by the underscore character (_).I do not know if this is a good separator, but it is not likely to be part of a timecode or a number.
