Please provide support for Tentacle Sync audio timecode so that we can sync using embedded timecode without having to use XML applications.
Premiere Pro already provides audio synching and timecode in the multicam synching panel, but it does not provide support for embedded timecode tied to the audio channel such as what you find in Tentacle Sync. https://tentaclesync.com/
Please allow us to sync clips using tentacle sync timecode.

LTC sometimes referred to as Audio Timecode by some NLE's that already support this, is huge. With all of the DSLR's showing up on shoots now, LTC is the only timecode that can be done by them, but since it has to be processed separately first. That extra step outside of Premiere is really aggravating.

Hi, i took the liberty of opening another thread to push this issue. Maybe we can generate more votes this way. I also referenced your thread in mine.

As a community we need to get past the idea that the multi-cam method is anything but a really poor workaround for audio syncing. It's not what it was designed for, and if we are requesting enhancements to it we're asking the wrong questions.
When you sync audio using multi-cam:
- Every clip ends up with a ridiculous yellow box around it when you play it in the source monitor.
- You can't double click to load the audio into the source monitor (it just opens the multi-cam timeline).
- There are no options to trim the synced timelines to match the video clip length.
- You have to manually change the multi-cam timecode if you want it to match the source clip timecode
The list goes on quite a while longer. Basically we all just want syncing to behave the way it does in Avid or Resolve, i.e. new, synced clips that contain all of the audio metadata and with the option to rename the clips based on scene/take metadata from the audio files.
Yes, I totally agree that adding an option to sync using sound timecode is essential, but please can everyone vote for the guy asking the right questions?

This would be such a great feature to have! Even Davinci Resolve supports this. A "Read Audio Timecode" option inside Premiere Pro would make things way easier for multicam shooting.
