This is partially a request, partially alerting you to a UI issue.
Let’s say I have some clips that don’t have timecode (shot with a consumer-type camera). It appears that Cortex will read the creation time and assign that time as the clip’s timecode. (Example: if the clip was shot at 9:09am, then the timecode for that clip is about 09:09:00:00.)
I right-click on a clip and select “Edit Timecode”. This brings up a small window to edit the timecode. Here’s the UI issue: there’s an option to “Update with settings below” but there are no settings below. Just empty space. Not a big deal - I can still edit the timecode from the starting frame.
Here’s the request: let’s say I am waiting for a smart slate to appear in the clip. Clip starts, after about 5 seconds, someone holds up the slate in frame. I can see the audio timecode on the slate and would like my video timecode to match the slate/audio timecode (for easier sync).
Is it possible to type the timecode of the current frame, then have Cortex do the math to determine the starting timecode? DaVinci Resolve has this feature and it is very helpful when manually entering TC values.
Edit: this is with the latest 1.5.2 beta.
