    Sorry for the non-descriptive subject.

    I’m an online editor.

    I am on 2018, and I stumbled upon a feature which was really helpful for the show I’m currently on. I’ve got 1 of 2 offline cutting copies (let’s call this one Netflix) on V13. It’s my secondary cutting copy because it doesn’t include “coming up on”s and “before the break”s. I have sync’ed this cutting copy to the master cutting copy, and when I’m done, I will close the gap for this Netflix delivery.

    Hope you’re following so far. So the client is using the Netflix version and its timecodes for most notes because it’s their master sequence. Since it turns out we’re delivering the longer sequence first, the Netflix version is now my secondary sequence. In the end, the difference between my primary sequence and my Netflix sequence is like 4 minutes and the timecodes are very different. So whenever they give a note at a specific timecode, I put the V13 TC on my bottom TC counter and scrub through the sequence to find it manually. What I discovered, however, is that if I put the V13 TC counter on TOP, I can punch in the TC locations on my numpad and MC finds the location in my timeline based off my SOURCE clip in V13! Very cool, huh? At least I thought so.

    So if anyone is familiar with this feature, my problem now is that it’s no longer working, so i’m back to manually scrubbing through the timeline and watching the V13 counter to find the right location. Does anyone know the rules of this feature, or how to get it back on?
