    Avid wrong start timecode on DNxHD 36

    I'm a lecturer at a film trade school, and reasently it has apared a reacuring (7 sepearate instanses) problem when relinking offline files.

    I did some diging into some of the projects and traced the problem to Avid reading the start timecodes of each clip as 00:00:00:00 and not the original "time of day" timecode of the clip, resulting in a issue when exporting through AAF on the online stage of the workflow and ending up with errors due to inn and out points missing by several hours.

    So I looked into the metadata of the transcoded clips using other programs like premiere pro and davinci resolve and they read the clips with the original timecode (14:34:15:02... etc), I also used the source browser in avid to rule out any import mistakes but I still end up with 00:00:00:00 timecodes.


    As of right now the students with this problem are relinking the online footage manualy using burnt in timecodes on the proxies, but this is a very time consuming workaround, and I'm hoping somone here have a solution for this problem, or at least a better workaround.


    Additional info:

    software: avid media composer 8.9.0

    offline codec: DNxHD 1080p 36 8-bit

    offline format: MXF OP-Atom

    offlineing software: davinci resolve

    online footage: red raw (shot on red dragon) and prores4444 (shot on arri alexa sxt)

    fps: 24

    os: macOS Sierra 10.12.4

    I am experience the very same thing using a very similar workflow. Many 00:00:00:00 clips in our project on the Nexis. Manually changing start timecode. Some students have everything right. Others not so much. Aarrrggg!!
