Allow Real-Time timecode input (e.g. Midi Time Code) in Offline Media mode

This would make InqScribe more useful for logging off a hardware player, but more importantly means it could be used for real-time logging during Production. An example would be when filming long documentary interviews or Reality TV, a Production Assistant could be logging events to timecode coming from the Camera. Afterwards, this data could be imported into a new Transcription document along with a video file, as a head-start for creating a full edit log or transcript. There's other live timecode loggers out there, but nothing that does transcription after the fact as well. There are several existing apps for Mac and Win that will take the LTC timecode signal in via an audio input on the computer and convert it to MTC (Midi Time Code) saving you writing that part of the code as well. In addition, this means users could live log from FCP, Avid or ProTools - all can send MTC to other apps following their transport.

    Hi Nick, Thanks for writing in the suggestion. InqScribe currently has time of day support. You can enable this by clicking "Media > Select Media Source", choosing "Source Type: Offline Media" and checking the "Use time of day" box.

    Are you asking specifically for Midi Time Code support?
