Timecode Effect generates wrong TC (adds an hour)
The Timecode effect when set to generate adds an hour to the time you have in the "Starting Timecode" field. For example, if I set the starting timecode to 00;00;00;00 the filter will generate 01;00;00;00.

Adobe please!!! Let us choose our own timecode starting point. Give us the option to choose another timecode then SMPTE for exporting a video with timecode starting at 00.00.00.00 and not 01.00.00.00.
I understand that the SMPTE timecode starts at one hour for broadcast applications but more often than not we have to send a clip to a corporate client for verification and that clip has to start at 00.00.00.00. Period.

I'm getting a random number if I try to set the timecode hour to something other than 0. I'm generating timecode with the Timecode Video Effect applied to a Transparent Video Layer.
If I set it to 01:00:00:00 it displays 00:59:56:12 if I set it to 02:00:00:00 I see 01:59:52:24.
There HAS to be a fix to this, right?

My numbers are more random than specifically an hour. I just shut down the program out of frustration, so I can't give the actual number.
This bug has driven me nuts over the years. My wish for Premiere in 2019 is to be able to handle proper timecode. Thank you

Gawd!!! This is unbelievably annoying.
