    Hello. A client has asked me to string together clips from a longer video. She has marked the clips by the timecode on the Quicktime playback timecode. When I bring the video into premiere however, the timecodes don’t match what they are in Quicktime. I’ve checked the FPS and they match in the sequence settings so I have no idea what is going on. How can I get Premiere timecode to match Quicktime timecode?

    you will need to enable OVERLAY in the program monitor. then go to preferences and set as in the pic i send. your timeline will not let timecode jump around. you can reveal clip timecodes by turning on OVERLAY.

    This sadly didn’t end up working.

    It has to do with TC Offsets. Apparently.

    I didn’t know how to do the match frame into source monitor.

    In the end I just ended up putting TC burn ins on the source footage and using those burn in TCs to cross reference with that weird QT time.
