Tip #1734: Change Starting Timecode in Compressor
Changing timecode only affect compressed media.
(I discovered this tip while researching my recent PowerUP webinar illustrating New Features in Apple Compressor & Final Cut Pro.)
Compressor got a surprisingly large number of new features in it’s latest update from Apple. One of which is the ability to change the starting timecode for compressed clips.
NOTE: This does not change the timecode of the source media.
To do this:
- Select the clip (not the compression setting) in the Compressor Batch panel.
- Go to the Job section of the Inspector (see screen shot) and change the starting timecode
You can also use this section to change the In for the compressed media or its duration, should you not want to compress the entire movie.
