Maintaining Accurate Timecode

The accuracy of your captured timecode is extremely important when exporting an
EDL. If timecode of your clips is inaccurate, online edits won’t match the original offline
cuts. This can be fixed by the online editor, but you’ll lose valuable time.

Make sure you calibrate your incoming timecode so it matches the captured video
stream accurately. For information on calibrating timecode, see “
