The movie panel operates on movie frames, not trajectory states, so you need to create a relationship between them. A one-to-one relationship can be created using the Python command:
cmd.mset("1 -%d" % cmd.count_states())
Or alternatively, you can use the new Movie -> Program -> State Loop or State Sweep menu items.

Subject: [PyMOL] DCD Trajectories and Movie Panel
I am playing around with the new PyMOL 1.2 release and was hoping to use the Movie Panel in conjunction with a loaded DCD trajectory file. However, after loading the MD trajectory and setting "movie_panel" to 1 I don't see the prescribed time line below the viewing area. Of course, if I add a camera loop then the movie panel appears. Is this a potential use for the movie panel or is this functionality not available yet?
Thank you for your time.
