    Timecode of QuickTime export defaults to 00:00:00:00?

    I am exporting QuickTime files, same as source, from Avid.  When I imported the QuickTimes into Compressor I noticed that the timecode track is no longer at 01:00:00:00; rather, it is defaulting to 00:00:00:00.

    I have confirmed that the original TC track is indeed at 01:00:00:00.  Cannot find any setting that would reset it to 00:00:00:00.

    Using Media Composer 2018.12.7 on Mac.  Is this a bug in the software?

    Thanks.

     - Bob

     

    ** Update: Looking at TC in QT Pro, it appears the TC track is accurate; problem may be in Compressor v4.4.4.

    Hello Bob,

    Is that version of Compressor the latest? I'll download Compressor to my computer later this morning as I can only get the latest I presume your also on the latest version from Apple. Did you export a QuickTime movie or reference? What were your frame rate and compression. I can double check and test here then report back to you.

     

    Kind regards,

    Dear Bob,

    I've had an issue logging into Appstore, so apologies in my delay. I needed to reset my passwordto gain access even though it worked previous. I've just downloaded the latest APPLE COMPRESSOR. I exported a Quicktime Apple Pro Res from my edit timeline from Avid Media Composer and the correct timecode came across 01:00:00:00. I'll test later this morning with SAS Same As Source from Avid then report back. 

    Kind regards,

    Leo

    Dear Bob,

    I am on Media Composer latest 2019.9 and using the latest Apple Compressor 4.4.5 on OSX Mojave 10.14.6. I made a Quicktime PRORES 422 HQ from Da Vinci Resolve.

    With-in Avid Media Composer I made a new project 1280x720 23.98. I cut the video clip PRO RES 422 HQ onto the Avid timeline. I did two tests defualt starting tiemcode of my sequence as 01:00:00:00 and another as 02:00:00:00.

    I then exported Quicktime Movie, and set same as source audio and video as it's a stereo audio clip left/right and un-checked use AVID Codecs.

    I opened each video file which were exported from Media Composer and both show the start timecode as 01 and 02.

    Kind regards,

    Leo

    Dear Bob,

    Have you tried another version maybe 1 version back of Media Composer to see if the same whereby the tiemcode is not reading in Apple Compressor?

    Kind regards.
