I know this has to be out there but I can't find an answer. I have a Canon 5D Mark IV that creates .MOV files. When I import them into Vegas Pro 16 project media panel and display there details, the start time of the timecode is always 00.00.00.24 for .MOV files and 28 for MP4 files. I have the camera set to "Free run" the timecode . I also have a Sony NX30 Camcorder that creates .MTS files and it is also set to "Free run". Vegas Pro 16 displays the start and end time of those files perfectly.
Not being able to find an answer, I plugged those same files into Adobe Premiere CC and had just the opposite problem! It read and displayed the .MOV files start and stop times perfectly, but the .mts files start times from the Sony Camcorder always started at 00.00.00.00 . However, I did find some workaround after a long search which stated that to get Premier Pro to display .mts files timecode correctly, the entire folder that the video files were created in needed to be copied over to your computer. I thought that was crazy until I tried it and it worked! So I solved it for Premiere but I do 99% of my work in Vegas and am desperate for an answer. Can someone please help?
