thanks to poison this procedure seems work ok to "transfer" timecode metadata from .mxf source into .avi destination
ffmpeg -i c0020.mxf -f ffmetadata metadata.txt
ffmpeg -y -i c0020.avi -i metadata.txt -map_metadata 1 -vcodec copy -an -id3v2_version 3 -vtag MJPG c0020a.avi
Now I wonder:
can I do the same thing with ffmbc?
Why? because my nle bad digest the vprp table created with ffmpeg.
Seems to me that ffmbc don't write vprp, so output of ffmbc is clean. But I cannot do the timecode transfer.
I have try ffmbc-i c0020.mxf -f ffmetadata metadata.txt etc.. but seems is no correct.
Please there i a way to use ffmbc?

at the moment I have not answer from zeranoe. Do you think is tecnically possible have in ffmpeg the vfw encoding of 3d party codecs?
ffmbc source is easly available but I don't know how is possible "emdedding" all to achieve a binary file ffmpeg.exe
Also I hope a custom build it is not something from the excessive cost, what I'm doing now is a gift for my cat :=)
However, it is now facing another small problem: when I the ffmpeg -y -i c0020.avi -i metadata.txt -map_metadata 1 -vcodec copy -an -id3v2_version 3 -vtag MJPG c0020a.avi the encoding is is strangely slow although the option "vcodec copy"
Cute cat........or whatever that is. I guess I can't help you. PDR is your best hope.Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........
Funny, a Tribble was the first thing I thought of. I remember doing a play in High School Literature class on that very Star Trek episode. I played Spock if I remember correctly........Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........
I know you are not interested in using another NLE, but here is a short selection of the output formats it can do for those that may be interested:Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........
a little yes.. i'm interested to change nle but I have repeated genomic sequences of cat.. I will change slowly nle. In the meantime, however, the change of speed razor, now, it works perfectly. I had to swap and change some. dll taken from another dinosaur .nle In Sync Blade (SR.dll, callback.dll, rzfile.dll, DVSync.rzf,scaleconverter.rzf) initially have a lot of problem (jerky playback, crashes). In recent months, there was only the problem of the timecode of the clips, but with this the problem is half-solved:
There are month that I'm trying the machine and is stable.
Speed Razor is absolutly the best in audio manage into the timeline: for news, with little time available this is crucial. The problem of this is my modified version is the "funnel hood" of the mjpg. However to the naked eye I challenge you to find differences.. except you have the cat's eye ^^
this is my batch automated (dos) tool:
cd /d c:\temp
for %%x in (d:\galvanina\*.mxf) do type NUL > %%~nx.avi
CD /d v:\automazioneclip\output
FOR %%A IN (*.*) DO (
IF EXIST "%then_delete_it_there%\%%~nxA" DEL /Q /F %then_delete_it_there%\%%~nxA
cd /d c:\temp
if not exist *%ext% goto:EOF
if exist temp%ext% goto:EOF
for /f "delims=" %%G in ('dir *%ext% /b /o:-d /t:w') do set file=%%G
for %%H in ("%file%") do set filename=%%~nH
echo %filename% | clip 2>nul if %errorlevel%==1 goto:EOF
ren %file% temp%ext%
c:\virtualdubnuovo\vdub.exe /max d:\galvanina\%filename%.mxf /s c:\marco.vcf
v:\automazioneclip\core\ffmpeg -i d:\galvanina\%filename%.mxf -f ffmetadata metadata.txt
v:\automazioneclip\core\ffmpeg -y -i v:\automazioneclip\output\temp.avi -i metadata.txt -map_metadata 1 -vcodec copy -an -id3v2_version 3 -vtag MJPG v:\automazioneclip\output\temp1.avi
ren c:\temp\temp.avi %filename%.tmp
ren v:\automazioneclip\output\temp1.avi %filename%.avi
it convert all .mxf file in (e.g) d:\galvanina and generate .avi mjpeg file in o:\ (subst of v:\automazioneclip\output)
maybe not even Shotcat have an interface for batch processing so advanced ^^...
I would argue that in ENG scenarios, it's more important not to have to re-encode everything, re-tag everything because it wastes TIME. Yes quick turnaround is important. But even if you have an automated batch file, a person with a good NLE will be finished editing and submitted before you even start to edit! What does your cat / tribble have to say about that ?

mmymmm I think you are jealous of my new, shin, powerful super NLE
please considering ffmpeg -i c0020.mxf -f ffmetadata metadata.txt or other ways (ffmpeg -c0020.mxf 2> catch.txt)
is there possibily to get timecode from a .mxf file and put it on a .txt file?
e.g. I have c0020.mxf
can I do a file .txt that contain only 01:34:21:15 ?
possibly without using the "for" istruction if is necessary a little batch Thanks
