frame offset

I'm grading a fairly complex VFX shot with a series of holdout mattes for various parts of the shot.
However, the plate has a 1 frame slate at the end and the mattes do not, making everything off by a frame.

I see the timecode offset value in the clip attributes, but it won't let me do a negative number and when I change it to a positive number and click okay, the change doesn't seem to register.

Am I missing something?

If the VFX files are DPX, then there's two utilities you can use outside of Resolve to change the timecode:

If it's ProRes 444 on Mac OSX, then Digital Rebellion's Pro Media Tools will let you change timecodes:

The brute force method would be to re-render out the files with the correct timecode, or you could pummel the VFX people into matching the precise timecodes of the original files.
