    ALE import using Frame Count Start, Frame Count Duration

    Just tested ver 2022.4 on AVID and while the following metadata columns can be exported as an ALE after manually adjusting the Frame Count Start, when re-importing the exported ALE the values are all reset to O and the metadata columns are renamed using lower case for the heading.

    Frame Count Start

    Frame Count Duration

    Frame Count End


    on re-import become "Frame count star" and Frame count dura"

    Having these pieces of metadata connected to a clip's timecode value based on frame rate would also be great.

    The TC Generator FX for Burn-in sets the Frame Count Start defaults to it's start value irrespective of which frame is being used as the IN point of the clip on the timeline. While this can be worked around by switching source timecode to "convert to frames", it would be great if there was a metadata for "Frame Number" that can be imported and exported with a clip.

    This is mainly for working with either Animtion projects or VFX shots, where frame number correlates directly to timecode, and the frame number is the metadata usually used to track frames not timecode.
