Quicktime reading timecode
on Sep 3, 2010 at 3:03:12 am

I am doing the closed captioning on my film in movcaptioner and my sequence has a picture start time at the 1HR mark on the timecode, but when I export out of the quicktime, my start time is zeroed. Is there any way to adjust the timecode of a quicktime OUTSIDE of Final Cut Pro?

Nice little workaround (or solution in my case!).

MovCaptioner has a "Shift to 1HR mark" feature which will basically allow me to work on this file with timecode 1HR behind! Good job guys!

Jumped the gun a little on that. It actually brings me to the 1HR mark in my Quicktime, which is actually the 2HR mark in my sequence. Back to square one. Any info on how to modify the timecode on a quicktime file to start at 1HR?

I guess you exported with Quicktime Conversion, which does not carry the sequence timecode.

If you export 'same as source' the sequence timecode goes with it.

A simple workaround...drag the file you exported back into the FCP Browser, the load it in the Viewer.
Go To the Modify Menu and select "Timecode". Manually enter the start time of the sequence. Voila. You now have proper timecode.

I tried this, but the file still shows a zero start time in quicktime. It's correct in FCP, but not QT.

Do you have the timecode display on?

What version of Quicktime Player are you using? Quicktime X does not have this...Quicktime 7 does, but you have to turn it on (right click on the time display)
