Re: another TL question

Dear Robin,

For time-lapse mode, I would:

1. Set your nanoFlash for System|Trigger Record & Remote so that the Record Button or Remote Control switch starts and stops the nanoFlash. Do not use Trigger via incrementing timecode.

2. Set you camera for Time of Day Timecode, not Record Run Timecode.

Or you could setup the nanoFlash to use Internal Timecode, if you so desire, any flavor of timecode will work, including Time of Day Timecode.

3. Set up other menu settings in the nanoFlash appropriate for Time-Lapse recording.

4. Press start on the nanoFlash or press the remote control to start recording.

The initial timecode value, from the camera will be placed in the files' header.

Each subsequent frame will record the timecode for the frame, in the frame.


Important Note:

When you put this file in your Non-Linear Editor, (NLE), for most NLE's, the NLE will use the initial timecode value, from the header for the first frame of the video.

Then, the NLE will recalculate the timecode for all subsequent frames from this initial value.
Thus, the timecode value for each subsequent frames may not be the original Time of Day.


Depending on your NLE, you may be able to "Burn-In" your timecode value into your frame of video, and/or examine the original timecode via various means.

This "Burned-In" timecode may be the original actual timecode value or may be the recalculated value, depending on how your NLE works.

I would suggest running a test.

I hope this helps.

Re: another TL question

Dear Robin,

If you set your camera to Free Run or Time of Day Timecode, then you do not need to run tape.

Yes, the nanoFlash supports Time of Day Internal Timecode.

If you set your camera to Time of Day Timecode, then you do not need to use Internal Timecode, unless your video signal does not include embedded timecode (or you are using HDMI).
