Edit to Tape in FC7, Blacking Tape can't select Drop Frame Checkbox
on Oct 6, 2010 at 2:11:04 pm

When I try and black a tape, either through Firewire or through the Kona LHe, I cannot select the drop frame checkbox when I enter my starting timecode. When I manually enter a starting timecode in drop frame 58:00;02, Final Cut automatically changes it to 58:00:00.

My sequence is in drop frame, and my device control preset is set to drop frame.

I've trashed the preferences, and I've re-installed Final Cut as well. The problem persists.

Any ideas out there? Thanks for your help!

What frame rate are you dealing with? 23.98? 29.97?

Sorry, it's a 29.97 DVCPRO-HD 720 timeline, originally captured via Firewire.

720p has to be 59.94 in order to be drop frame.
