I primarily am just wondering about the function in general, in the past I've never gotten anything out of it. And I had been told that it didn't work by others, so I never gave to much thought. Now I'm reading on the forum here that it indeed works.
I guess I'm wondering if there are circumstances in which it works and others in which it doesn't?
It will always read clip tc if you play clips via AJA TV but not in 720p23.98 or 525p23.98.
Sequence tc will work if your sequence is NOT 23.98 720p or 525, but will work if it's 1080psf23.98 as that's a recognized format with true 24p tc. The Kona won't do the on the fly tc conversion necessary when adding the pulldown to certain 23.98 formats.
Check the 'Use QT Timecode' option to get what you want from FCP.
[Eric Johnson]"hose are the only two formats that this function doesn't work on?"
WEll, I haven't tried every combination and permutation, but as I see it, it's really anything that isn't supported by SMPTE will no be recognized. 720p23.98 is just a fantasy when it comes to SMPTE. Since 23.98 needs to be displayed as 59.94 on a monitor, the tc conversion doesn't hold up.
