FCP7 clips from NEXFS700 all have 00:00:00:00 as start time - appear as duplicate clips
on Apr 30, 2017 at 7:55:17 pm

This used to only happen when I would use my Sony a6000 as a B-camera where when importing clips, their individual timecode always began at 00:00:00:00 instead of in-camera timecode. Is there a setting I changed on the camera or in FCP that is causing this? It's a pain because each clips shows as a duplicate clip, but they're not. A manual, and tedious, fix could be changing the reel # of each clip, but I'm wondering what I did that caused this, so as to avoid it in the future.

Thanks.

sorry, i don't know that camera

how did you get the footage into FCP?
Sony may have software to deal with converting it properly, so it retains it's actually reel# and timecode


you could read the thread bellow this one.
it started as a question about match framing, but morphed into a discussion on duplicate frames and reel#s

I'll check out the other post.

I imported the footage using Log and Transfer directly from the SD card. What's odd is that other times this doesn't happen to me, but for some reason today it did.

Good luck finding Sony software that works with FCP 7. I don't think it would be high on Sony's to-do list to make software for an application that Apple stopped supporting 7 years ago

i don't mean plug-in for FCP, but a stand-alone app that would generate ProRes files with the correct metadata.

Sony do make software like this for their other formats.

That's what's confusing me because it seems like in the past, when importing to FCP from my Sony FS700, this wouldn't happen. Timecode would match the timecode that the camera laid onto the memory card. But for some reason now it stopped doing this. Maybe a camera setting?

i'd try importing it again, if you can.

if you don't still have the card, then these files are your masters, so you can add whatever TC you want to them.

Just tried importing again an same results. Is there a setting in FCP that determines if new clips' timecode reverts back to 00:00:00:00 or continues from the last clip's timecode?

Check this. It won't help you now, but for next time it might be the answer.

I ran across that thread in my search, but it doesn't seem to address my issue. On the camera it shows timecode is running. It's just when ingesting to FCP7, or reading the SD cards, that each clip shows up with a Media Start timecode of 00:00:00:00, instead of being continuous.

I tried importing to FCPX and it seems to have held onto the timecode. So the clips have timecode, it's just FCP7 not importing that data for some reason.

Any ideas what I can toggle on/off to make it read that once again?

I just figured it out. Ends up I was running FCP v7.0 and after updating to 7.0.3, it suddenly sees the metadata.

good news!

yes, 7.0 was pretty buggy,
but i didn't know (or had forgotten!) about that one

thanks for letting us know
