Recovering your timecode after MPEG Stream Clip transcode
on Dec 4, 2012 at 4:43:25 pm

Hi guys, hope everyones ok.

Recently Ive transcoded some footage through MPEG Stream clip as I wanted Pro res to start my edits and my timecode has been completely scrubbed.

Ive looked online for a reasonably painless/free method of doing this, Ive come to the conclusion that possibly the only free way of doing this would be to go through and modify the timecode via FCP.

That works fine, but the only problem is, is I have a lot of footage to do this with, now to do it manually for myself isn't a problem but is there a more cost/time effective solution? I could go back and use compressor if need be or as you guys know there are other methods, but I would like to try to find a solution to this problem as it seems in my searches I have not found an answer.

Feedback would be much appreciated as to how I could use manual methods but with greater time efficiency, there has to be some sort of way.

Much appreciated if anybody could shed some light on my query, thankyou.

What footage are you converting with Streamclip? From what camera?

Then why are you using MPEG STREAMCLIP? If you used FCP and Log and Transfer, you'd retain all of this timecode.

Yes Shane im aware of that, but for whatever reason FCP was being a real s*** and was not allowing me to do it via FCP!

Which is why im asking this question

Well, since the 5D files don't have TC to start with, make sure the files have it before you render.
You can use QT change to add timecode. Then, also export the attributes.
Move the attributes files (*.att) to your renders, use QT change again with the option to use the attributes.
Select the add timecode function, and you're done.

hth,

Has anybody tested the the above workflow with QTChange. I have a ton of Prores Proxies that are without timecode and will cause major problems down the road. If this process works I will be overjoyed!
