    Does FCP provide any means to embed the TC of your sequence into a QT export? I know there are third party utilities that allow you to insert a TC stream into an existing QT file, but it seems that this would be an obvious thing to do from FCP.

    Nest the sequence, add the TIMECODE READER from the VIDEO FILTERS>VIDEO section and render. Then export.

    Thank you Shane.

    I’m aware of how to window burn a TC using this method. What I want is to embed the actual TC of the sequence into the QT file as metadata – the same way FCP does when capturing from tape. This way, other apps that can read this TC can use it to cue to, reference to, etc.

    The timecode is retained if you export as Quicktime Movie, but you lose it if you do Quicktime Conversion.

    You asked the same exact question back in March in this forum and you got an answer from Tom Wolsky.

    Ed,

    I’m aware that I already asked this question, – but someone on the Apple booth at NAB told me this was possible using a QT conversion export, but couldn’t elaborate – which is why I posed the question again. It’s not a matter of liking or disliking the previous answers.

    You *did* see the smiley face, didn’t you? 🙂 And besides, it got you to elaborate on why you’re asking again.
