Using 59.94 drop-frame TC in Avid MC 5.5

Is this possible? I'm transferring an FCPX project that is 720p/59.94 drop-frame to Avid. Basically just using the original clips, but using the timecode shown in the Angle viewer in FCPX. I figure if the timecode base is the same I should have no problems re-building based on TC. I haven't imported the footage files yet, just AMA linked to them and the TC base seems to be 29.97 on the source side. THe project was set up in Avid to be 720p/59.94. Shouldn't the source window TC be the same as the record window TC?

The only reason why I'm doing this ridicules thing is because FCPX is fighting me every step of my audio edit.

Not necessarily. Sequence timecode can be drop or non drop depending on what the default settings are set for. If you currently have NDF and want DF, go to the sequence in the bin for START and enter the timecode you want for first frame of sequence and make sure you add ; ; ; for drop.

DO I need to put the ; after every number or just the frames? I always thought you only needed the ; for the frames in DFTC and not the whole thing...

Probably just the last frames will do, but I always found it easier with my limited typing skills to not worry about changing between : and ; when typing a timecode... ;)
