    FrmC - be made available to List Tool

    FrmC (a counter based on Frame Count Start column) is available in the composer window data displays and the TC Window.  Once FrmC counter is made available to the TC Burnin (currently it's broken on the version I am using, see link to discussion below), could this also be made available to the List Tool so that cut lists could be made based on frame numbers without having to use the DPX or VFX counters?  These columns both expect a prefix before a dash (<prefix>-<frame count>) so if you don't use a prefix they always have a dash making the numbers look negative, confusing which ever program you export them for.

    The new columns Frame Count Start, Frame Count End and Frame Count Duration can be selected in Assembly lists in the List Tool, but getting an in and out point based on the frame count start figure would require FrmC to be available.

    It is very useful to be able to assign a custom frame number start to VFX scans, animation image sequences or similar, so it would be even more useful to be able to generate lists based on a sequence of start and end numbers.

    There is a discussion on the use of FrmC in the TC Generator tool in this thread :
