Setting the Timecode Source Settings - AWS Elemental Server

This is version 2.15 of the AWS Elemental Server documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Conductor File and AWS Elemental Server Documentation.

Setting the Timecode Source Settings

Before you start setting up the captions themselves, you need to make sure that the timecode settings you make result in correctly synchronized captions. The simplest way to make sure that your captions synchronize correctly with your video is to set both the input and job-wide timecode source to Start at 0 or to set them both to Embedded.


If you set both to Embedded, the timecodes in your captions files must begin at the same time as the timecodes that are embedded in your input video.

To set your input timecode source setting

  1. On the Create New Job page, in the Input section, under Input 1, choose Advanced to display more settings.

  2. For Timecode Source, choose Start at 0 or Embedded.

To set your job-wide timecode source setting

  1. On the Create New Job page, at the bottom of the Input section, find the Timecode Config section.

  2. For Source choose, choose the same value that you set for the input timecode source setting.
