IN QGIS 2.18 when using the Crayfish plugin and loading a netcdf (which defines it time relative to some offset point) there is an option to display the "Absolute Time". (in contrast to "Relative Time") see screenshot.

In QGIS 3 there is only the relative time.

It would be nice to have the Crayfish option also in QGIS3.

Note for others: in netcdf for example you define your timeslices as "Years from 1 jan 2010" for example.
You then see 1,2,3,4 for data 2011-2014.
