Hey, I’m using AVID Media Composer to make videos.  I love working with this platform.  The only problem I have occasionally is fooling around the avid datecode and timecode. How can I easily change and edit the datecode when it automatically set itself wrong?

Hello Nicholls,

I am here to help you with your problem. Your problem is to set a date code according to you. Well, it is quite a simple job and you can do that very easily by following my instructions.

1. Open up your Settings and scroll down to the General Settings as pictured below:

2. Double-click to open the General Settings and simply enter the default starting value you require:

3. Now, each time you create a new sequence it will begin at the TC value you set as your default.

I hope this will help you.

Thank you.

Hello,

You seem to be doing fine, but I think I can clarify a few things for you.

You want to modify the timecode you found for the presented progression, here's how you can do this:

– Place the series storage bin to demonstrate the start timecode feature.

– Click on top of the start timecode and category.

– Right click on the creator window and choose Get Sequence Info, and you will be able to modify the start timecode.

To modify an existing progression timecode:

-Click on the recorder window and then CTRL + I, which will pull up an info window. It will ask for consent to change both the number and the base (DF or NDF).

I can also forward you a video showing you how to do it.

Hello, Nicholls

Hope you are fine. Don’t worry. I think I can give you a solution.

If you want to change the start timecode of  the existing sequence, Then do as follows

 Set the sequence's bin to show the start timecode column.

Click on the start timecode and

Type in whatever start timecode you like.

Or  with the sequence loaded up,

 Right click on the composer window and

Select Get Sequence Info,  you are also able to change the start timecode.

To change an existing sequence timecode,

Click on the recorder window and

Then CTRL + I will bring up an info window. It will  permit  changing of both the number and the base (DF or NDF )

Otherwise I can suggest you the below video tutorial so that you can understand better.

Hope you will get your answer.
