I’ve built some graphic sequences that I’m now copying into another master sequence. Before I copy the graphic sequence in to my master sequence I select all the layers and contain them. I’m not working in a 3d environment just simple layering and I’m containing them to simplify the move (copy and pasting one clip as opposed to the multiple layers I’ve pre-built).
The issue is when I go back into that container which is now in my master sequence. The time code retains the time code from when I originally built the graphic sequence. For example, my graphic starts at the 1:00:20:00 mark on my master sequence. When I go into the graphic container the time code switches to 59:53:00 which is where it was originally created.
How can I maintain the master timecode reading in and out of containers?
I am not sure that you can maintain that timecode.
However you can change the timecode for the clip if you need to via the reformatting tools.
Just right-click on the clip in the media library and choose reformat.
In the reformat menu, just choose to change the record timecode.
