Can you read timecode into a log file?

Since FFMPEG and FFMBC can't copy a data stream from a Quicktime file (where timecode is stored), I have to resort to setting the timecode using the -timecode command in some instances.

Is there any way to read the filename and timecode into a log file that I can then use to power a python script or batch file for when I actually convert the MOV file?

Nevermind, seems like the 2> command will do just fine.

Could you elaborate on what you ended up doing? I'm looking for a way to read the input files timecode and make the starting timecode value available to the drawtext filter so I can burn it into the picture. Currently I'm having to set the timecode manually for each input file. Thanks.
