I have never heard of VITC in a file.
I used it years ago in SVHS tapes and Premiere was able to read it.
Someone can correct me but I believe it is an analogue "protocol" and I know no way of writing it to a file from Premiere.
Thanks Shooternz. I've been doing my research and just waiting for a few more responses on how to deal with this situation.
Good luck Jason
VITC is data stored "between frames" alongside the blanking etc. ie. on the frame outside the image frames. The black or blank areas
Not sure where or how in a digital file that this could be replicated.
Maybe your client could provide the spec and "reason / purpose" and hopefully some one with the tech knowledge could add to this for you.
I wish I could talk to the persons directly applying the subtitles, but it's through an agent(my client). I'm thinking I'm not getting the information I need. In Final Cut 7 I can manually add specific timecode values for the video to start from... But I don't see why they would need this If I did a frame accurate copy of the timecode from a timeline based on the video file's frame rate.

You can do that in PPRO as well...but it wont be VITC
So a break thought... The client said the file had timecode(surprise, surprise) but apparently I said it didn't have timecode(I said I don't think it would have VITC), so now it's just for the text document to have the corrisponding timecodes in PAL... which surprisingly was only a few frames off. I just rounded frames digits off to 22 and 25 at it's highest point... which seemed to work when I checked them back in the video.
