    Making files for audio transcription

    Hi All

    I need to make a copy of my rushes on a low resolution file like QuickTime or MP3 - but not only with source BITC, but taking the source timecode and creating a longitudional timecode track too. I can't find an obvious way - is there something I've missed?

    Many thanks

    Re: Making files for audio transcription

    In your project window, click on the 'Effects' tab;
    from the drop-down menu, pick 'Generator'.

    One of the choices inside 'Generator' is 'Timecode burn-in'. Incredibly useful; you can burn in more than one timecode.
    You can probably work out what to do from there with a bit of playing around; haven't used it for months but re-post if you get into a pickle.

    (For transcribers or especially translators for whom this isn't a steady job, I sometimes edge the 'burn-in' window to one side of frame to omit frame count - easier on the eyes and brain for a lot of people, unless you really really need frame-count as well as seconds)
