    QuickTime FastExport bug in path with folder names >8 characters

    i just discovered a very weird and unfortunately not easy to reproduce issue:

    If you try to export several sequences (selecting them -> right click -> export) as same as source QT with a manually set start TC to a path containing one or several folders whose name is longer than 8 characters then your first generated QuckTIme will have the correct TC but subsequent ones may have a TC starting at 00:00:00:00...


    I just observed this on Windows7 x64 with Media Composer 8.3.1 while exporting several sequences containing DNxHD 36 24fps medias as same as source QT. Once the problem occured on a set of sequences it would consistantly happen until I chose a path without folders longer than 8 characters...

    I was able to reproduce this by creating a title with the Title Tool, editing it in 3 different sequences for a duration of 2 minutes and 30 seconds each time. The sequences were named "1", "2",  and "3" and were exported to "y:\tmp\123456789" where "y:" is a mapped network drive to another Windows7 computer. "" had its TC set correctly while "" and "" were both set at 00:00:00:00 instead of 09:59:58:00.

    As explained above, if I exported them to "y:\tmp\12345678" instead, the three QuickTime files had their TC correctly set. Re-re-exporting them to "y:\tmp\123456789" would exhbit the same problem again...

    Now this seems to depend on several other factors as I was unable to reproduce the problem if I exported the same sequences to an ISIS mounted drive...
