    MC 2018.2 No Timecode with BWAV Audio AMA

    So on Media composer 2018.2 if you AMA to BWAV's it seems all time code starts at 00 hours.

    This was on a 25P project not sure about other framerates, If you use this wotk flow upgrading should be avoided

    Re: MC 2018.2 No Timecode with BWAV Audio AMA

    I just confirmed this on Mac and PC. Project 1080i59. I exported a mono 24bit 48k wav from my timeline starting 00:58:59:28. I then linked it back to a bin (alt drop). The console shows the correct timecode start time but the master clip has a start time of 00;00;02;06. The export links fine in MC8.6.5.

    Re: MC 2018.2 No Timecode with BWAV Audio AMA

    Now April 11 and MC 2018.4. Some of these problems go back to 2018.1 or before.

    Fixed in Media Composer v2018.4
    The following have been fixed:
    ➤ Bug Number: MCCET-2332. In some instances, audio files linked with the WaveAiff plug-in
    may have come in with the wrong duration.
    ➤ Bug Number: MCCET-2323. Audio files linked with the WaveAiff plug-in did not have the
    correct timecode.
    ➤ Bug Number: MCCET-2320. The Audio time-code rate in the Link Settings Link Options did
    not work when using BWAV Files (BWF).

    I retested linking a mono wav file I had exported from a Avid 1080i/59 project. On link in the Audio Start-Time Options I selected 29.97DF and the dialog correctly showed File TC: 00;58;59;28 (30). After clicking OK the Master Clip in the bin shows 00;58;59;27.

    I also tested relinking a wav export from a Avid 1080p/23 project. Selecting 23.98 on link it correctly shows 00:57:50:00 (24) and lands in the bin at 00:57:50:00.

    Looks like some timecode / rates work and some don't.

    Does TC work properly when you import instead of link to?

    pierreh:

    Pierreh,

    If I Import at 29.97DF with 2018.4 the In and Out Timecode are correct (00;58;59;28).

    Further Link testing shows that the Duration matches the Import Duration. The In and Out Timecode are both 1 frame ahead (00;58;59;27).

    This file Links correctly with MC8.2.11 and MC8.6.5.
