Cannot Output timecode to tape FCP
on Jul 24, 2012 at 6:51:07 pm

I have a Decklink board and FCP7. I am trying to output a show to Digi-Beta with timecode from the timeline.
I have a 9pin hooked from the Decklink to the Digibeta remote in but no timecode.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks

You don't output timecode from FCP. That's not what the serial control is for. The serial control passes timecode information back and forth from the tape deck to FCP.

You need to stripe a bit of code onto the tape before you can achieve an assemble edit from FCP. Once the tape has a small amount of code, you can invoke "Edit To Tape" from FCP and assemble-edit your sequence. ETT allows you to remotely control the tape deck and set an in point where you want the sequence to go on tape. Then you can set an in and out point in the sequence, drag the sequence to the Assemble button in the ETT window, and the deck will automatically preroll and roll in, recording your edit.
