HD-1400a cannot read Varicam tape timecode when FF/FR
on Dec 22, 2010 at 6:53:29 am

I have two HD-1400s and neither can read the timecode from a Varicam tape (shot in regular 60p mode, no varispeed) when the tape is being Fast Forwarded or Fast Rewound. This is a problem when doing a batch capture from the NLE, as sometimes the log will search for a timecode in FF/FR, and when it thinks it has stopped at the right place, it's way off, because it's simply searching in Control Track mode once the speed kicks up. With the HDX900 tapes, changes in timecode can be seen as the deck is in FF/FR, but not the Varicam, so we have to change our workflow with the Varicam tapes. I searched the menus over many times, and there seems to be no clear remedy for this. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Hop
