I saw a video on youtube from an FCPX user and he has a little timeline in his Event Viewer and normal Viewer. Any idea how to enable this?
I wrote a comment on this video, asking how he did it. Maybe he'll reply. But if not, that's why also ask here ;)

Here is a screenshot

I found out how you do this.
You need a little App called CommandPost , it's a FCPX extension, and in it's prefs you can toggle Show Timeline in Viewer on and BOOM

Dang... While the extension does bring the Timeline into the Viewer, you can't use it for anything. So no skimming, etc. like you could do in FCP7

The new MBPs have one that uses the touch bar, but not on any other Mac.

Command Post offers this, too.

I already mentioned Command Post in the 2nd post, but it just displays the timeline. It's merely a picture. You can do anything with it.

Erm, nope. You could add markers, set in/out points and scrub/skim in it. Similar to Premiere and AFAIK Avid too.
