I followed the procedure and premiere is not procise enough -
It doesnt start exactly in the TimeCode i specified to him
I tried also pre roll and delay but it didn't help.
and also I have another question but I'll ask in a new thread.
I can export T/C to video with precise T/C but it requires an offset. In my case 17 frames advance.
Work out your own offset and apply it.
In my case its 29 frames.
but still I couldn't export with TC - only to "assemble at TC".
Maybe My deck doesn't support it (I tried to play with the "External and internal HDV\DV" option) - though I seriously doubt that since it's Professional SONY HVR-M15E DECK
Here is the manual:
Note PAl 25fps
What I do is I place the media in the timeline as per the TC requirement. eg for me it is a program start at 00:01:30:00
The leader etc starts at 00:01:11:23
I use an insert at 00:01:11:06 (06 +17fr=23: there is the 17 frame frame advance)
Hope that helps
BTW - SOny DSR-11
When I had a MAc system the off set was 21 frames
"What I do is I place the media in the timeline"
What do you mean by that?
I move the Program start (1st program frame) to 00:01:30:00 in the timeline.
The Leader and bars precede that and start at 00:01:11:23
THe TC is accurately written to the "prestriped tape" as per my timeline.
Thinking about this for you.
Prestripe your tape with TC as per requirement and then follow my workflow
Write it as you wish and let the TV station work out the offset. (Its no big deal for them to do so when they dubb up) They wont be broadcasting direct from your DVCAM tape.
Yeah you right - about the station.
But I want to look professional - and I want to know this for future use as well.
So you are telling me that you can export the TC from your timeline to your DSR-11?
Or you have to SET the TC in the deck?
Which options do I have to set - for me to export the TC from the timeline (after I set the start time of the timeline)?
01 For this time I set the TC - in my PD-150 camera. recorded 30 seconds (00:58:00:00 - 00:58:30:00)
02 took out the TAPE - put it into the HVR-M15E DECK
03 rewind to 00:58:02:00
04 EXPORT TO TAPE:
Assemble At Timecode: 00:58:30:00
150F-121F=29F is the frames I need to have it to start at the desired point.
All I need to know now - is how to export TC to begin with to skip the tedious 1-3 steps!
In the past, Premiere could not actually output timecode. The deck always generated the timecode during exports to tape.
If CS4 can do it, it's a new feature.
Jim is right and there is no difference in CS4
It is how you set up the tape and the export.
So yes... I stripe a tape and in my case it is always 00 start and I stripe about 5 minutes worth. Note - I make TVCs (15,30,45,60,90 secs long)
Each TVC starts on an 00:0X:30:00 (X= 1,2,3,4,5,6 minutes etc)
For a 58 minute program start you could stripe with a 56 or 57 minute start on the tape. Then factor in the Offset.
I do repeat though. The station can write to the broadcast media very easily from whatever if they know the offset.
A tip: On my leader, I always run a burnt in TC Effect and my post hoiuse loves it.
Your deck may be in assemble mode, rather than edit mode. This should be a menu item or a switch on the deck.
