Export sequence with clip timecodes, not sequence timecodes?
on May 7, 2012 at 7:03:08 pm

I want to export a sequence that reflects the timecodes of the individual clips it contains, not the timecode of the sequence itself. (a TCR or TCG overlay won't suffice here)
I'm stumped! Is there an obvious way to do this that I am just missing?
Thanks in advance!

TCR is the only way I know of...

What? You want the timecode track of the exported file to jump to different timecodes when new clips appear? No, that won't happen. Only timecode overlays...the Timecode Reader...placed on each clip will give a reference to the source timecode.

That's exactly what I want!

It may sound crazy... but there is a good reason:

I have geographical data that corresponds to particular frames of video which is all based on timecode. I want to be able to put multiple clips in once sequence for ease of viewing (so the client can open one QuickTime file instead of having to open 50 clips).
I absolutely must maintain the original timecode - if it changes to sequence timecode upon export, the geographic coordinates no longer match up to the video.

Would there be any plug-ins or filters that could do such a thing?

This isn't possible with FCP...Avid...Adobe Premiere. I don't know of third party solutions that do that as I have never had the need for this, so I didn't look.

Sorry.

I feared as much. I'm probably the only person in the world that would actually want this kind of feature...

sounds like you want to give them a SEQUENCE of clips.
can they use FCP, or some other NLE?

Unfortunately, no. Many will need to view with only quicktime or windows media player.

if they are only viewing with simple tools, what use is the embedded TC?

The TC is just reference for the basic users to lead them to the corresponding point on the map. For users with proprietary software, they will be able to click on the map and it will take them to the place in the video. To allow communication between the basic and the advanced users, the TC must be both accurate and consistent.
