Apple Final Cut Pro: Final Cut Pro: How to Calibrate Serial Timecode

Chapter: Editing

Topic: Capture, Digitize, Import

Unless you’re capturing a DV video format via FireWire, the timecode and video signals are sent separately from the video deck to the computer. Because the signals are separate, they can possibly arrive at different times, which causes the wrong timecode number to be recorded with captured video frames. You can calibrate your timecode and video capture setup by entering the number of frames by which the timecode signals are offset from the video into the Capture Offset field.
