Export timecode source

Hi guys I have an issue regarding timecodesource when rendering a .mov from AE.
I have recieved a lot of shaky clips filmed with a DV camcorder that needs to be stabilized in after effects. After stabilizing i wish to export/render the clips to a .mov and batch import them to Final cut pro. Therefore I need the original timecode in each clip so I dont have to insert them all manually back in place.
Ive searched everywhere for this but I can only find threads that explains how to make burned in visual TC but thats not what I want.
Anyone know of some way to do this? Thanks in advance.

After Effects CS5.5 and higher has support for source timecode.
Dragging a footage item onto the new comp button in the bottom of the project panel will create a new comp with the same starting timecode as the footage itself.
(This feature can be overridden to create comps that always start at zero in Project Settings > Time Display Style > Timecode > Footage Start Time.)
