    MC2020.4 MOV export Timecode issue

    On Win 10 1903.

    Have been looking forward to trying the ProRes on Windows. From a 1080p23.976 project I did a MOV ProRes LT Export with 6 audio tracks and a Data Track with Captions. My first goto is still Quicktime because it will show Timecode and Captions. My Avid timeline starts at 01:00:00:00. QT displays 3600 where the timecode would normally be. The QT menu is set to display Timecode. The 3600 advances as I step forward 24 frames. I have never seen QT do that.

    I ran the file with ffProbe and ffPlay. They show the TC as 00:02:30:150 (yes 150).

    If you take QT 3600 and divide by 24 you get 150 which is 00:02:30:00.

    I linked this back to Avid and it linked with UME and showed Timecode as 01:00:00:00.

    MediaInfo also shows Timecode as 01:00:00:00.

    Just quessing but I would worry that other players / decoders might not get this Timecode right.

    I did also try 1080i59 PRHQ with no Data Track and the results match except the number advances after 30 frames.

    Re: MC2020.4 MOV export Timecode issue

    Now on Win 10 1909, MC 2020.6.

    Timecode in a UME MOV export is still not right.

    Maybe no one else uses QuickTime Player or any ffmpeg apps with MC MOV exports but I still think timecode has problems.
