Source timecode effect or more advanced timecode effect
Need a better TC filter to be able to display burn-ins on exported sequences for source clip TC, with selection of various source tracks

I'm working on a project that uses a ton of archival footage. Right now, I'm trying to request high res versions of the stock footage we're using--easiest way would be to put on a Transparent Video with the Clip Name and Timecode Effects applied to it, both pointing to the first track where all my video is.
The problem is that these archival clips have a variety of frame rates (23.98, 25, 29.97, 30), and the Timecode effect makes you select a Time Display for the entire clip. There should be an option under Time Display to match that to the frame rate of the clip on the source track. Right now, I need to go and check every clip in the sequence, and create new effects for each framerate in the sequence, which sucks.
It's crazy to me the Overlay TC display can correctly show the source clip's TC, and there's no good way to output a sequence with that burned in.

If I use multicamera sequences the timecode displays the clip timing from the multicam sequence, not the source timecode from the camera. This is a very basic tool an assistant should be able to use to create screener of assemblies of selects, for example. There are workarounds, but this should be a one-click task.
