    Question about using Auxiliary TC1 Bin View

    We usually acquire video footage using 2 - Canon 5D Mark IV DSLR cameras while recording audio to a SoundDevice MixPre6 audio recorder. We have matching timecode on all devices using the Tentacle Sync timecode system. When I bring the footage into Avid, I’m able to have Avid read the timecode from the audio channel and then have it re-reference the timecode to Auxiliary TC1 which displays the “Start” timecode of the clip in the bin - GREAT. Is there any way in the bin to display the Auxiliary TC1 “End” timecode of the clip and/or the Auxiliary TC1 “Mark IN” or “MARK OUT” in the bin? This would be super helpful if it’s possible.

    Thanks in advance!

    Once you have the timecode in Aux TC1 why not modify the start timecode to match that Aux 1 timecode.

    Then mark in end etc will be correct

    Re: Question about using Auxiliary TC1 Bin View

    That worked! It's a bit tedious though with copy and pasting each Aux1TC into the Start field of each clip. Is there an easier way?

     

    Thanks!

    Re: Question about using Auxiliary TC1 Bin View

    There is not and I have asked for this for many years - be able to duplicate the AUX TC in to the start TC column instead of copy pasting every single aux tc individually.  Such a bore. I wish Avid would sort little things like this out, I feel your pain.

    ...You could do this by manually copying every value form one field to another, but there is a more convenient way to to this. Media Composer lets you copy a complete row of timecode information to another.

    Here is an example of how you copy all „Start TC“ values to the „Auxiliary TC 1“ row:

    − Select „Start-TC“ row by clicking on the „Start“ row header in the bin

    − Press Ctrl-D (or CMD-D under OSX)

    − A window should open. Here you are able to select the target row where you wish to copy the selected Timecode to. Select „Auxiliary TC1“ and hit ok

    But it doesn't work the other way which is what the OP is asking about. You can't duplicate the aux TC in to the start TC column. You have to individually copy each entry.

    You are right. I just assumed it would also work the other way round. Confused

    Re: Question about using Auxiliary TC1 Bin View

    I see Your pain. OTOH I have a question: in case of disater? Say You modify the Start TC and You have to re-acquire the footage for any reason, will that work? I never mess around with data MC uses to link-relink-batch-import, have I been missing something?

    Re: Question about using Auxiliary TC1 Bin View

    I would never modify timecode that I knew to be correct. Often the only reason you're changing this timecode is that the camera didn't have any to start with or it was wrong. You're correct in that you won't be able to batch capture or relink to clips with the wrong timecode, but you can always change the timecode of the altered clip back to the original and then it will relink.  This haappens often with archve clips where the low res gets supplied with one timecode and the hi res gets supplied with another. As long as the duration and frame rate is the same, you should be able to relink by changing the timecodes to match.
