    Aux Timecode

    Hi all,

    is it possible to create a subclip with IWS and submit a specific Auxiliary Timecode 1 value ?

    I couldn´t find a system field for this. Any help is  welcome.

    Many thanks

    Tilo

    What is IWS? You can assign AuxTC to a clip. Just select to display one of the AuxTC columns in the bin.

    Re: Aux Timecode

    IWS is Interplay Production Web Services.

    Tilo is looking to assign an aux timecode programatically through the web service API.

    We're researching it here and will post a response, soon.

    Re: Aux Timecode

    Tilo,

    You can use the SetAttributes call to set the aux timecode attribute after you create the clip.

    For example, here is an XML request for SetAttributes:

    <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:typ="http://avid.com/interplay/ws/assets/types">
      <soapenv:Header>
         <typ:UserCredentials>
            <typ:Username>user</typ:Username>
            <typ:Password>pass</typ:Password>
           </typ:UserCredentials>
      </soapenv:Header>
      <soapenv:Body>
         <typ:SetAttributes>
            <typ:InterplayURIs>
              <typ:InterplayURI>
                 interplay://WGC?mobid=060a2b340101010101010f0013-000000-515458fd72bf02ba-060e2b347f7f-2a80
              </typ:InterplayURI>
            </typ:InterplayURIs>
            <typ:Attributes>
               <typ:Attribute Group="USER" Name="Auxiliary TC1">01:02:03:04</typ:Attribute>
            </typ:Attributes>
         </typ:SetAttributes>
      </soapenv:Body>
    </soapenv:Envelope>

    Here's what it looks like in Interplay Central:

    Hope this helps,

    - Rob

    Re: Aux Timecode

    Hi Rob,

    thanks four your advice. I gave it a test and some strange things happened :

    1) Interplay generates a SYSTEM property called "com.avid.workgroup.Property.System.AuxiliaryTC1" with the value i have set (02:03:04:05)

    2) after dragging this master clip into the mediacomposers bin, the column "Auxiliary TC1" remains empty and the player does not show any TC when selecting Aux1 as timecode source.

    3) when editing a new value in composers bin (03:04:05:06)  and checking that into a interplay, the field mentioned above does not get updated and still contains the old value.

    BTW: I can see it in access client, but don´t get it when reading the properties via web services (neither the old nor the new value).

    4) when dragging the updated master clip again from interplay window into a new bin, "Auxiliariy TC1" contains the new value (03:04:05:06).

    5) when inspecting the master clip copy in the new bin in access client, the metadata field created under 1) still contains the old value (02:03:04:05)

    My conclusion is that mediacomposer does not read this field from interplay db, instead the "real" aux 1 tc is somehow stored in the aaf ?

    Please let me know if this is something that should work in general or if you see a different way to set the aux timecode in a way that is usable for an editor. Maybe it is worth to test it with newer product versions ?

    We run MC 5.0.3 and Interplay Version 2.3.0.24670.

     

    Many thanks

    Tilo

    Re: Aux Timecode

    Tilo,

    I am seeing similar results here. There appears to be a disconnect between MC and Interplay regarding the Auxiliary Timecode values.

    I will open up a bug report with the team that develops the MC <--> Interplay interface.

    In the mean time I will run some tests on newer versions of MC / Interplay.

    OK, we are still looking into this. The tracking number is UDevC00178737.
