    Change List in FilmScribe: Funky "Total Change" Timecode!

    I'm trying to give picture change lists to our sound editors, and I've been encountering a weird problem in Filmscribe. The "Total Change" column has completely conflicting data for Footage vs. Timecode. Take a look:

            At This     For This                       At This                      Total
              Footage     Length       Do This         Record TC  Clip Name          Change 

    _    1.  0031+10   -0013+02      Delete  Shot     02:00:21:02 pe011008         -0013+02
             0044+11    00:00:08:17                   02:00:29:19 pe011008         00:00:10:23
    _    2.  0043+10   +0001+08      Lengthen Tail    02:00:29:02 VT1153.06        -0011+10
             0045+01    00:00:00:23                   02:00:30:01 VT1153.06        00:00:09:17

    Sorry if it's a bit difficult to read. The footage numbers are correct, but the timecode numbers are way off. You can see that the length of the first change in the "For This Length" column is -13+02 or 8:17 (which is correct), and the Total Change for footage is the same, since it's the first event, but the Total Change for timecode says 10:23, which is just wrong. Every event is like this. I've tried changing every setting I can think of, but to no avail.

    If anyone can help me, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm in a 1080p/23.976 project. I'm using the Columnar Template, Master Durations are footage, No Source Durations, Master TC Track is TC1.

    I hope I've included everything pertinent.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Which version of MC and FilmScribe? Also, make sure you are selecting the proper timecode rate form the global pane desired.

    I'm on MC 4.0.3 / FilmScribe 26.0.2.

    The Master TC Track I'm using is TC1, which in a 1080p/23.976 sequence, should display 23.976 timecode numbers like the "For This Length" Column. It seems like FilmScribe is using a different time base for the Total Change column.

    Are you selecting "24" in the master TC section on the global pane?

    Normally, no, I select TC1, not TC24. However, choosing TC24 gives me the exact same results. It may be worth mentioning that while this is a "Film" project, the material was shot in HD video at 23.976p.

    Re: Change List in FilmScribe: Funky "Total Change" Timecode!

    Just upgraded to MC 4.0.5 / FilmScribe 26.0.5. Still encountering this issue. I can only assume it's a bug. Can anyone confirm or offer any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    This still happens in the Filmscribe versions that come with MC 5.0.3.8, MC 5.0.4 and MC 5.5.3. The TC figure for "TOTAL CHANGE" does not make any sense - its no where near - any news on whats going on here?

    Thanks

    Almost 6 years later... this is still a bug in all the latest releases.
