Export H.264 with source timecode
on Nov 3, 2017 at 12:37:06 pm

Hi all.

I’m currently trying to export a H.264 with the source timecode embedded, from Premiere. Whilst I can see the timecode as part of my exported file when I bring it back into Premiere, the client wants to be able to see it in QuickTime. When looking at the file in QT, I don’t get the option for viewing timecode in the drop down at the bottom left, only standard or frame number.

I’d like to know if t is possible to create a H.264 which retains the TC, and if not, then why not! Thanks.

In my experience, when you export from Premiere:

h264 / .mp4: Premiere reads the embedded timecode, other editing apps don't

h264 / .mov: Premiere and other editing apps read the embedded timecode

QuickTime doesn't read the timecode from h264 files both in a .mp4 or a .mov .wrapper.

Thanks for your input. When trying to export h264 via the QuickTime format to get it as .mov, I get “exporter returned a bad result, error code 27”. Is there something else I need to do?

Use a format that has a TC track or burn in the timecode.

You can add a TC track to movies that don't have them. Here's a terrific app for that:
