Default Export/import an audio file with timecode?

Hi there,

Now, upfront, timecode has always confused me. I'm editing a podcast that is using audio from a very long, professionally shot video interview. I exported the audio as a wav file and imported it into Reaper.

My problem is that we had someone transcribe the interview, but they've done so using the time-of-day timecode embedded into the video. So, all the times used for audio bits I need don't match anything I have.

So, I'm wanting to re-export the audio, but hoping to include the timecode so that I'll be able to easily locate the audio bits that I need.

Is there a file format I can use that will include this timecode info to be read by Reaper?

As this is digital, there should be no slurp.

Hence it should be possible to stretch the timeline of Reaper to be e.g one bar per second and match this near the beginning and the end and use the bar count as second count.

Thanks, Michael. My problem is that the transcriber has used the embedded time-of-day timecode, so I'm having to find grabs at, for example 13:52:16. The interview itself starts at 12:58:02, whereas the start of my clip starts at 00:00:00. I could convert all the times (once I've figured out the difference between the two), but that will be a very time consuming calculation.

Hence my wish to somehow export that original audio file with its embedded time-of-day code.
