    Losing Timecode on AFE import

    Working on DS 10.3.1 and MC 5, I transcoded a sequence of AMA imported clips and exported an AFE to bring into DS.  Now when I conform the AFE in DS, some clips have kept their correct timecode while others have reverted back to 00:00:00:00.  I have gone back into MC and verified that sure enough all of the transcoded clips still have the correct timecode attached to them, however I've tried importing and recreating the AFE a number of times and continue to get the same results.  Any thoughts as to what I may be doing wrong?  Thanks!

    Re: Losing Timecode on AFE import

    After reading some related threads, does anyone know if this is the Media Composer "bug" referred to in this thread for example?

    Re: Losing Timecode on AFE import

    Is there any chance at all that some of your clips (the ones with 00;00;00;00 timecode) were actually imported via the regular file import or drag and drop? With version 6.5 of MC, the AFE and AAF files from MC using AMA'd clips keeps the correct timecode where the file-imported clips have timecode that is zeroed out.

    Just double check that all of the clips in the bin were actually from AMA source.
