How do I move timecode to metadata in videofiles

8.83K viewsSoftwaremetadata software

I have FS7 footage with audio-timecode from Tentacle device on channel 2. Ref. audio on channel 1.

I want the software to read the audio-timecode and re-write the metadata timecode in the videofiles to match the recorded audio-timecode.

Is this possible?

You will find our TentacleSync Software which is doing this here: http://tentaclesync.com/downloads

As an owner of a Tentacle Box you have all the export functions. You only need to connect it to your Mac while exporting.

Thank you .. I’ve used the software to sync audio to video w. timecode-audio. – What settings do I need to perform the meta-data rewrite on the videofiles only? – I mean when there are no audiofiles present.

Keep in mind this is FS7 footage in a file hieracy from sony. Can the software handle the xml stuff that supports the sony directory structure and such.

Embedding TC only is currently not possible. If you export it  with “Pass Through Original” your footage will not be touched just copied into a new “.mov” container. The audio TC track will be muted. Any NLE will handle this files flawlessly like the MXFs. The other choice is to export an XML for FCP7 or Premiere.

More functions will follow…

I see. It makes sence. I have the software running now, and I’m able to produce the .mov’s. Only now the problem has become reading the TC. Only a few of the original clips are read. So for the majority of the files the timecode is not recognised. – I’m curious to why this is the case. When I load the clips up in my NLE all the channel 2 tracks make an approx -18db on the level meter, and they all sound like an old modem kicking of. Never the less you software is only able to detect the timecode of 3-4 clips, out of 40. – That’s odd, right?

Sorry.. I was driving my Mac Book through Teamviewer which was slow to show the results. – It’s working as expected now.

Will there be a windows version of the software?

Right now it’s a hassle for me to get the files through an Apple OS due to all my workstations being linked in a Windows universe. – It would speed my workflow 10 times if I could keep it in a windows domain.

Thanks for innovative products.

It is much more complicated to do this for Windows but we are planing it. Sorry, we don’t know when this version will come…
