    How do I export a .mov file with timecode that matches the timecode on my project's timeline?

      Hi:

       

      This seems like it would be an easy thing to figure out, but I'm striking out so far:

       

      I have a long, 10-minute source video (actually a series of 16mm film clips that were telecined to a single 10-bit uncompressed .mov with continuous timecode by a film lab) on my project's timeline.  I need to be able to export small sections of the timeline to individual .mov files--and I need to be able to open the resulting short .mov files in a footage logging application called F5.  I'm currently trying to render these small individual videos as H.264 .mov files, since that's a format F5 can read.  Rendering/exporting the 'work area' selection from my project works fine, so that's no problem.

       

      The problem I'm having is that timecode of the resulting H.264 .mov files don't match the timecode on my Premiere project's timeline--they always start at 00:00:00:00.  I don't want that.  If I render out (for example) a section of 00:05:10:00 to 00:07:00:00 on my project's timeline, I need the exported .mov file's timecode to start at 00:05:10:00 and run to 00:07:00:00, not restart at 00:00:00:00.  Is this possible?

       

      I'm running Premiere Pro CS6.0.2 on a Mac OSX 10.8.2, all updates installed.

       

      Thanks very much.
