Audio Timecode Metadata

Syncing sound by TC in media window
Exporting to MXF +ALE for metadata

Once you have synced sound by timecode in the media window is there a way to set thw metadata to include audio timecode (as distinct from camera tc) in the metadata? This would be in addition to the camera timecode already included. I see there is a slot for Audio TC in the resolve metadata but it does not populate when I auto sync by timecode. And the audio timecode column is not populated in Avid.

The reason to include this audio timecode in metadata: The assistant editor has asked for it! Sync has generally been perfect on this project. So in Avid he can copy and paste source timecode to audio timecode column. But we are trying to prepare for when sync is off. Having the original Audio tc embed in the dailies metadata would point you to the correct audio tc in and out points for any offset clip (after you have adjusted sync manually in Resolve). Otherwise this offset is lost in the metadata.

This seems like something possible to do.. Especially since resolve is doing other stuff with the audio tc. For instance audio tc can be included as a burn in.
