How I can "read" audio SMPTE time code ?

Jul 22, 2011 2:22 AM



In old days was used Audio SMPTE timecode.

How CS5 can extraxt timecode from Left or Right or any audio chanel?



- Video not contain  timecode. (Only meaneles timecode from digitalisation time)

- Left audio ch contain camera support audio.

- Right audio ch contain SMPTE audio timecode.


External AUDIO PART:

One audio ch contain SMPTE audio timecode.

1 ch ------ 7ch contain audio material.



How I can convert / read audio SMPTE timecode and use it with Premier CS5  ?

    The only kind of audio timecode Premiere Pro will read is in a Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) file. Make a feature request here: Adobe Feature Request/Bug Report Form

    No, your question was clear; I'm telling you that Premiere Pro cannot read embedded audio timecode. You can request that, however, which was my suggestion.


    You may want to look at this tool for reading audio TC and writing it to a QT TC track: VideoToolShed - FCP auxTC reader

    I don't think it really matters cause if you right click on the merged clip it says that it links the audio to the audio file so I'm assuming that in the EDL it should note this so the soundy can read it.


    Am I right?
