I have exported the EDL of my video sequence in cc 2017.The timecode for the source clip is incorrect while the timecode for the sequence is proper.

Here are a few EDL entries depicting the same.

022  AX       V     C        00:00:28:18      00:01:55:08      00:34:43:09      00:37:15:24

* FROM CLIP NAME: 1057.4-to-1059.0 DJI_0026

023  AX       V     C        00:02:56:18      00:03:09:12      00:37:15:24      00:38:09:03

* FROM CLIP NAME: 1057.4-to-1059.0 DJI_0026

024  AX       V     C        00:04:25:11      00:04:55:18      00:38:09:03      00:39:10:24

* FROM CLIP NAME: 1057.4-to-1059.0 DJI_0026

Clearly, we can see that in the first entry,

source clip timecode - From 00:00:28:18   to   00:01:55:08   (Duration = 1 min 27 sec or 87 seconds)

Sequence timecode  - From 00:34:43:09  to    00:37:15:24   (Duration = 2 min 32 sec or 152 seconds)

I checked with the raw footage also and this  00:01:55:08 timecode is incorrect. There is not even a cut there.

Sequence timecode is perfect.

What am I missing here? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

The attached discussion is about H.265 encoded videos. I still have this issue. For now, I have stopped relying on EDLs. Please let me know if I can try something else. Also, I hope Adobe fixes this bug ASAP. Accurate and reliable EDLs help in simplifying the workflows so much as this exactly tells us what all we have done with raw videos in a simplistic manner.

Hoping that Adobe fixes this soon.

It's nearly 2022.  Why is this still broken?  I'm importing an EDL into Resolve and all of my timecodes for certain types of footage are between -1 and -4 frames off.  And the best part?  It can vary even within a single source clip over various edits, so I can't even use an offset in resolve.  PLEASE FIX THIS!!.

what happens if you transcode to an all iframe format like prores...  I'm wondering whether the h265 encoding is the source of the issue.  Also, are your source files from a smartphone?  If so, the problem is probably a result of variable frame rates.  Here's how to diagnose and fix


use mediainfo to determine whether your source is variable or constant frame rate

if it's variable use handbrake to convert to constant frame rate setting the quality slider in the video panel to maximum

and here's a tutorial on how to use handbrake
