I captured a MiniDV-Tape into Premiere Pro CS4. I started working with the DV AVI file. At that moment the Timecode was displayed correctly.
But as soon as I restart the program, the original timecode seems to be lost.
It's set to 00:00:00:00 at the beginning (originally it was something about 09:59:30:18).
The Timecode still exists in the metadata of the avi-files (a demo-version of DVMP Pro 3 gave me proof), but Premiere seems to be unable to recognize it.
It's kind of weird that this problem only appears after restarting the programm.
I need those timecodes now. Does anybody know how to fix this problem?
(please excuse my bad english)
well, perhaps i just got installation issues.
if you capture material (from a miniDV tape) and close premiere after the new created avi file has been imported automatically. and if you restart premiere and open the same project. and if you finally double-click that avi file to get it into your source monitor: does it still have the source timecode?
There is a Preference that I believe may cause the behavior your see. Check them.
