Dude, don't be teasing me like that :0

But thanks for allowing me to rant - apologies to the forum readers who are tired of it, already.

I will be one happy camper when this one gets solved! I started a documentary project in December that continues to shoot this year and will edit in January... all double-system sound, with a three-camera shoot coming up this december - I need timecode!

Frame accuracy is an interesting question in today's workflows with a tool like Vegas. It was so important when we were putting up reels on multiple tape machines for iso recording or for the edit in an online suite that was costing hundreds per hour. If you couldn't "match in" with frame accurate code things got very hairy fast.

Now, we'll put up three cameras that aren't even genlocked, much less master timecode jammed. But it's only a matter of a few minutes to acheive sync in post if we have rough time-of-day timecode on all the tapes (& audio recorder). And that rough t-o-d code is pretty easy to set up on the timeline, with easy sync just from rough TC to better than 15 frames. At least it was in DV. Then Vegas makes it easy to fine sync from reference audio on each camcorder.

So, really, all I'm using is the starting TC on each clip.
