When I first found "Video editing forums" I somehow new I was going to revisit as I found it to be full of people with video editing problems! (Just like myself) and the advise is second to none! I have recently started to use Adobe premier pro and after several weeks of learning and frustration I am begining to find my way round. As one learns to use more of it's functions the more problems one seems to comes accross!
I was wondering if anybody could shed a little light in the area of timecode, the problem is I have a 58 minute production in my timeline and I want to export it to a min dv tape via a 1394 connection. When I am presented with the record dialog box it shows specific timecode values ie Timecode 19.58. End Timecode 49.42 then at the bottom it says current Timecode 19.58. I hit the record button only to see my movie start recording at 19.58. I go to the help menu and look up and carry out the following procdure, To stripe a tape with timecode:
Put a completely unused tape in the camera.
If you're using a camera, attach the lens cap and disable audio input.
Begin recording. Let the camera or deck run until the entire tape is recorded. After following the instructions I began to record again only to find that the Timecode values in the dialog box had not changed and that my movie would start at 19.58 mins mmmm!. "Just a thought" I have burnt a few dvds off but I need to learn more about the settings as the quality is not upto scratch however last night I tried to burn another and when I replayed it... on my dvd player the movie started at you guesed it 19.58 as you can imagine it's all to confussing for me Grrrrrr! I would be most grateful for any advise to help me iliminate this problem Thanks for listening.
Andy but I wanna be again! (I'll be Back)
