Timecode in exported files

  • Currently the the timecode information is not passed through to the connector in Resolve.

    Is it possible to manually set a timecode start time in voukoder in the mean time?

  • Thanks!

    Yeah definitely. I mainly need it for deliverables to start at 00:59:50.00 and when creating proxies film source footage. Thank you.

  • I just tried it out for proxies creation where I am rendering out Individual clips with filenames using source name. In this setting, the timecode from the source clips are used instead of the timeline timecode. The clips used also have synced audio from separate wav files.

    Unlike previous versions, each clip is not starting at 0:00 anymore but it is not accurate. I have to look at it more, but each clip seems to be off random times. I tried the open sourced x264 plugin made by Blackmagic, and it's accurate with timecode.

    Here are 3 clips I used, tell me if you see the Pattern on why it's off.

    23.98 Project

    Clip 1 Source:

    Start: 11:24:56:02

    End: 11:25:48:18

    Runtime: 00:00:52:16

    Clip 1 Rendered Proxy (Voukoder)

    Start: 11:25:37:04

    End: 11:26:29:20

    Out of Sync by: 00:00:40:16

    Clip 2 Source:

    Start: 11:25:53:01

    End: 11:26:14:16

    Runtime: 00:00:11:15

    Clip 2 Rendered Proxy (Voukoder)

    Start: 11:26:34:05

    End: 11:26:55:20

    Out of Sync by: 00:00:41:04

    Clip 3 Source

    Start: 11:26:37:20

    End: 11:26:59:06

    Runtime: 00:00:21:10

    Clip 3 Rendered Proxy (Voukoder)

    Start: 11:27:19:01

    End: 11:27:40:11

    Out of Sync by: 00:00:41:05

    On top of this, I noticed some audio rendering issues, I'll make another posting about it. But it's mainly having issues exporting 24bit WAV and channel mapping.

    This is how i tested it:

    3600/3600 = 1 hour

    0/60 = 0 min
    6/1 = 6 s

    (0.4 * 60) / 1 = 24 // timebase is 1/60 ~ 60 fps

    results in 01:00:06:24 (So this is the timeline timecode, i guess)

    How can I reproduce the issues you have found?

    P.S.: I have sent this issue to BM. (Along with the other questions I have). Let's see what their reply is.

    Changed the title of the thread from “Manually set start timecode” to “Timecode in exported files”.
  • Hi Vouk,

    No, everything is under 23.98 in settings and footage frame rate.

    I also don't think it's a bug as the BM x264 connector works.

    You can download sample red files (I was working in this format) here:


    You should be able to re-produce by adding multiple R3D clips into one timeline. Then go to render page, select individual clips and use source name for file name.
