Default Bug with satellite in chain gang


There seems to be a bug when using the satellite MC in chain gang.
The protools seems to get the wrong timecode while scrolling through the satellite (MC) timeline. When I click a second time on the MC timeline at same frame protools moves to the right spot.
Scrolling on the MC timeline makes protools jump back and forth making my faders jump all over the place. (Lucky they are nice and quiet >control24 ;-)
This is pretty annoying since I use the chain gang option it to verify the changes made in the image cut and to re-conform the protools session if necessary.
Everything is fine while playing though.

PT HD2 8.0.4 on mac 8core snow leopard
satellite MC4.0 on winxp

Is it a known bug digi?

What timecode formats are you using on both systems?

What is the starting time code for both Pro Tools and Media Composer?

When you say the Pro Tools rig is jumping, can you tell where it is jumping too (beginning of the session for example)?

From what I remember, there aren't any bugs with what you are describing. I have seen issues where timecode settings or start times can cause some odd behavior.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the response.
Timecode is 25 fps on both systems without offsets between PT and MC
(xdcam material on the MC 4.0.5)

I've dicsovered that the protools jumps between the TC of the source to the TC of the master window in the MC. So just gang 2 clips together at a different TC and scroll through the timeline on the MC you'll see the PT jumping.

It's nothing worldshocking just an annoying thing that shouldn't be there.
