BUG: Media Encoder will not generate drop frame timecode.
- If creating a preset from scratch, it is possible to "Set Start Timecode" to a DF (e.g. 01;00;0;00)...HOWEVER the output file will be NON drop frame starting at 00;59;56;11
- A preset with DF "Set Start Timecode" of 01:00;00;00 will immediately be changed to NDF timecode starting at 00:59:56:12 when applied to source clip in queue, and can not be changed to DF 01;00;00;00 once applied.
- In Preferences>Media, "Indeterminate Media Timebase" is always set to 29.97 Drop-Frame
I have tried several versions of Media Encoder:
12.1.2 in Mac OSX 10.11.6
13.0.1 in Mac OSX 10.13.6

i have media encoder on a few different macs and the only one I can generate DFTC is using Version 13.1 (Build 173) None of the other macs with newer version of media encoder work correctly. Unforunately I download this excact older version. Adobe fix your junk!! We pay amonthly premium and shouldn't get hosed like this!!!

I'm having the same issue. We have some media encoder presets we've been using for an episodic show and a few months ago we were doing fine using them. But not we're exporting more deliverables and I can't generate a drop frame export for the life of me. Does anyone have an acutal solution to this?
