    Simple app for associating MC5-readable time code to Canon EOS files?

    Hello- Looking for reccommendation for simple, user-friendly app that adds time of day time code to Canon EOS files (5D markii & iii, 7D, T2i, T3i)? Not looking to transcode, but just associate time of day code to the original files. So I want it to be batchable and fast bec/ the time-consuming transcode needs to happen in Avid MC5 later (via AMA link and then transcode to Avid friendly HD res level.) Key of course is that MC5 can read this TC - it's visible in bins - once transcoded. OK, if app alters targeted files; I make multiple back ups of the cam original files and can dedicate one set for this TC alteration.

    Have been trying Video Tool Shed's qtchange bec/ it seemed like just the right thing. But interface is VERY confusing/un-intuitive and doesn't seem to be quite working - same clip has different start TC's in FCP7 and Avid MC5 (FCP7 seems much closer to being correct ToD code.)

    I've been using Grindr for my Canon EOS workflow in FCP7. It does add code but it's necessarily a transcode process. So it's time-consuming. And doesn't do Avid DNxHD on MacOS anyway.

    Any reccs would be much appreciated. Thanks, Nick.

    We've got an app called QT Edit that does this:

    My software:
    Pro Maintenance Tools - Tools to keep Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro running smoothly and fix problems when they arise
    Pro Media Tools - Edit QuickTime chapters and metadata, detect gamma shifts, edit markers, watch renders and more
    More tools...
