BlackMagic Cinema Cam EF 2.5k Avid Read Audio Timecode issue

PostFri Sep 27, 2013 11:53 pm

Hello,

I have the Blackmagic Cinema Camera EF 2.5k, with firmware 1.4.2. I have a timecode generator Horita Portable Timecode generator. I take the output from the generator and feed it into the audio input on the Blackmagic camera as MIC in.

I go into Avid Media composer tried with 6.5.3, 7.0.2. I import the clip direct into Avid using the Avid import mode.I go to special and choose (read audio timecode) it says discontinuous timecode detected and it fails updating.

However when I tested with a hire camera the same camera, but not sure on the firmware it did not have the time-lapse feature it worked perfect. So could a firmware update of broken this working?

Thanks,

Leo
