Capture from non-contollable device with timecode

Hi

Here's my situation: (FCP 6)

I have a multi cam shoot with all DSR cameras locked to timecode. This is also recorded on the master DV deck. In addition I also capture the master mix straight into FCP using the 'non-controllable device' setting via the deck's firewire.

The problem is that in doing this, FCP does not take in the master timecode but instead generates it's own, which is a problem when trying to sync up clips from the camera ISOs later in the edit.

I'm told there is no software solution to this, but there might me a gadget that enables you to re-feed master timecode back into FCP?

Any thoughts on the gadget or work-arounds?

Thanks

Will

You can use the Aux Timecode function to change the TC on all your clips so they match the master TC.

Fantastic, thanks Walter.

If anyone else knows of the gadget, would be pleased to hear from you.
