I haven’t found a good way to do this from the montage recently, so I’ve ended up editing the BWF time reference in rendered files after the fact to what I know they should be and resaving the files. But that takes extra time and seems like something I shouldn’t have to do, so I’d like to find a reliable way to do this in the set up for the renders. Maybe there’s a simple way, but if I ever knew it I forgot it.
If I have a montage with one long clip or multiple clips, and the first clip starts at 58m 59s 144ms 25smp on the montage timeline, and I want the render file to have exactly that BWF Time Reference in the meta-data, and I want the rendered file to start exactly where that first clip starts, how do I set up the meta-data to do just that? I need to render selected clips, or place cd or region markers and render one long cd track or region to get the render file I want in a case like this.
I’ve tried a number of things including editing the BWF Time Reference in the meta-data window beforehand but I always get unpredictable incorrect results with that now. I thought I’d done that in the past successfully but apparently not.
