Multi-cam Different Codecs Same Timecode goes way out of sync

Multi-cam with different codecs, same timecode, clips go out of sync. Premiere CS6 goes out of sync on the second clip moving it way down. Only work around it to match by in points. Not bad just wondering there is a known bug or is this something new?

System Details:

MacPro 5,1
CS6 Production Bundle
Lion 10.7.5
16GB RAM
AJA Kona 3 Card 10.4.4 driver
AJA Adobe 10.4.1 presets

Not certain what you're describing.

"Goes out of sync" usually means that the clips start in sync and then they start to "drift" out of sync.

Do you mean that when you tell PPro to sync by timecode, it doesn't work properly?

...and you've verified that the timecode does match and the framerates are exactly the same?

Re: Multi-cam Different Codecs Same Timecode goes way out of sync

Tim, sorry for any confusion. So the clips when setting up multi-cam all look fine like there going to sync to timecode. Its when you actually sync them that the one clip jumps out of sync. Like the timecode shifted. Yet they were all gen-locked and have all the same timecode. The only difference being the codecs of ProRes and XDCam 422.

Thanks

Sounds like one camera was set to NDF timecode while the others were set to DF.

Re: Multi-cam Different Codecs Same Timecode goes way out of sync

If they all had the same TC, how did the timecode get there? Were the cameras jam-synced? Were the ProRes files created directly from cameras, or were they converted?

Is the one clip that doesn't sync the non-ProRes clip?

If you double click the clips from the project panel and search to a frame you can verify is the same on all clips, and you look at the same frame in each clip, does the source panel TC read the same for all clips?
