Today I wanted to give the production assistant timecode for logging. I thought I could connect the tentacle to the app, so it displayed the tentacle timecode. It did, of course, but i wanted it to stay running the timecode after disconnecting so she could see the timecode. Of course it won’t be frame accurate, but this doesn’t matter for logging. Is this possible for a future update, or are people using other apps for this purpose? I tried some other apps but they wouldn’t read the timecode from the tentacle – probably need a special lead? At any rate the lead that works with the tentacle and the app doesn’t work for other timecode apps.
thanks for this suggestion. I ll have to check that if it will be possible to maintain the timecode within a few frames over a couple of hours.
For using other apps you’ll need the Tentacle to iPhone cable : shop link
I know it’s not easy to understand that you not just can use the included iPhone Setup Cable. This has technical reasons, because the Tentacle app uses a two way communication instead of other apps like movie slate…
Hope that helps!
