Timecode filter in compressor?
on Mar 13, 2010 at 5:31:51 pm

No matter what my sequence timecode is, the Timecode Generator filter in Compressor starts at 00:00:00:00.

And I made absolutely certain that the "start timecode at 00:00:00:00 box was NOT checked.

I used to be able to use this filter and it always accurately reflected whatever timecode I had set in my sequence, but not any more.

One more piece of information: if I export a QT reference file and THEN put it into Compressor, the timecode filter works perfectly. It's only when I use the Send To command from FCP that it displays 00:00:00:00.

Can anyone else replicate this, and if so, what should I do?

Thank you.

Export a reference QT. You said that works....

Thanks Shane, but I was hoping to avoid that for the simple reason that FCP exports the full audio portion of the sequence (not just a reference like Avid), and I have 24 half-hour sequences. So I'd love to save the extra steps (not to mention drive space) by doing it directly from FCP like I used to.

I have no idea what changed, but I'd love it if someone could confirm that it's a bug, or that there's something corrupted in my system.

I now believe it IS a bug. I tried this on three different FCP systems and it's repeatable.

Sad part is, it USED to work.
