Posted 16 Jul 06Are you blacking the tape first?
There's a part of the "edit to tape" process whereby you black your tape and you choose the start point of your TC (e.g. 09:57:55:00). Then you can assemble edit onto that your bars, black, clock and sequence.
Note that this doesn't work with the DSR-11 and there's a separate workaround for that - I think it involved blacking the tape in a camera using its custom TC, then insert-editing on top of that, back on the deck.
In conclusion, the TC's from the tape, not from the timeline.
