Hi Yvon,

Dave's suggestion for "Time of Day" tmecode is often standard practice on film shoots. Essentially the timecode counter is set/used as a 24 hour clock that uses the digits as the same HH:MM:SS:FF, but instead of counting from 0 they are aligned with the time of day. A timecode of 18:23:54:12 means the video was shot at 18:23:54 in 24H clock time or 6:23:54pm for a 12H reference.

This way you will have coincident/unique timecode for syncing, and it represents the time of the day that the footage was shot and one timecode clock serves 2 purposes.

If you are shooting multiple cameras and sound recorders, it is best to sync them all using a sync box or feeds from a master "time of day" timecode clock, although it is also common to use a sound recorder as the master clock source and sync the cameras to that using sync boxes or as the very least a "jam sync"
