there have been a number of useful discussions here concerning wireless transmission of timecode, but i've not been able to find an answer to the following question … what are the consequences in post production of time of day timecode that has a timecode "jump" in the clip? case in point: in my quest to make life a little easier for my hard-working associates in the camera department, i have in the past considered ways of using the camera hop as a timecode device, and eliminate the bulk of the sb3 box. the lectro d4, for example, could be used as a stereo hop, with the third channel being used for tc. i've tested it, and it seems pretty solid, but when I begin messing with the d4 transmitter - powering down, removing the antennas to cause noise and dropouts - the camera (fs7 with the module) doesn't cut, but it does show a three frame glitch in the timecode before switching over to its internal generator. another thing i wonder about is the presumed "correction" that would occur when using an erx as a timecode source. if the camera wanders away from the zaxnet source, then wanders back a while later, discontinuous timecode, however slight, will inevitably result. if the camera is rolling when this correction takes place, how much of a problem is this for post production?
