    Is there a tool or method of checking to see a particular video file has zero based timecode in Windows? I am receiving video files via FTP and it would be easier for me to be able to check if they have zero based timecode without importing them into final cut or something. Hopefully someone knows of a tool or method for doing this! Let me know if you need any more info. Thanks to any replies in advance!!

    Download Quicktime for Windows if you must do this without a Mac and FCP.

    The Quicktime counter display lets you select between standard time, timecode, or the frames of the clip.

    Quicktime only displays TC if they are .mov files.
    I’ve got a tool here (build for another purpose) that does this for MXF, AVI, QT, Red, THM, MpegII and DPX.

    In batch…

    Contact me direct if you want more info.
