fcpro timecode generator hiccup

      OK I suppose this whole program was designed in the USA and they rarely think beyond the borders (outside he USA box).

      My gripe is that having set up FCP for dv-PAL the time code generator fails to recognise that the frame rate is not 30fps but 25fps.

      Result..applying the timecode generator to a video file that lacks its own timecode makes it very awkward to step through a clip referencing the timecode since the clip duration is at variance with that timecode readout.

      Example:actual clip length 8.09 – timecode readout 6.28 (the .28 is the clue as PAL has only 25 fps.

      Gee thanks Yanks!

      Did you double-click the clip to load it into the Viewer window, click the Filters tab in the Viewer, and change the format to 25fps?

      Only just got back to doing what I want to do!

      THANKS for the info. I was unaware of the the need to do this.

      Apologies for slanging off at the Yanks. Have visited the States a few times and apart from the very odd occasion have met with nothing but friendliness.

      Will retreat to eat my humble pie quietly in a corner!
