Timecode in MOV

  • In Adobe Media Encoder CC 2017, when transcoding a video (i.e. MOV or MXF) that has an embedded timecode track to a MOV via Voukoder 1.1.0 format, regardless if libx264 or NVIDIA NVENC is used, the embedded timecode track is not preserved (not copied to the new MOV). However, if I use QuickTime format and H.264 video codec, the timecode track is preserved.


    Is there any way to get Voukoder to supoort embedded timecode tracks in MOVs?


    Thank you.

  • Phew... never dealt with timecode tracks before.


    I guess it is not possible to preserve it. But maybe it is possible to create a new timecode.


    Need to look that up in the ffmpeg docs.

  • It should be possible since aftercodecs implemented it a few months ago.


    Timecode is really important in certain situations so it would be a useful feature to have.

  • Any progress with this? Quicktime with timecode is essential for my workflow.
    Please consider working on this again. Thanks.

  • I enabled the timecode information in mov/mp4:

    Code
    Tagged date : UTC 2021-02-11 19:31:35
    TIM : 00:00:41:50
    TSC : 60000
    TSZ : 1001


    ... and 00:00:41:50 is exactly the position where I rendered my short clip from the original footage from.


    Available in the next release.
