    Timecode burn-in displays N.A. on video mixdown.

    I've done this dozens of times: tc burn-in effect on top video track. Video mixdown. Use mixdown for client viewing or audio reference.

    Out of the blue, when I do the mixdown the display shows "N.A." instead of the code, even though the code displays correctly in the timeline. Have rebooted, tried changing project format, fresh tc burn-in effect.

    It seems to work fine if I render the whole effect before doing the mixdown, but it's a huge timewaster.

    Has anyone had this happen? Suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.

    Are you sure the mixdown is on the same V-track number that the burnin effect is reading from?

    Yes. If I render the effect it's correct. If I do a mixdown after the render it's correct: Master TC in this case.

    I just experienced the same thing. Typically, if it's working during playback the video mixdown will render it, but in this case everything looks fine in realtime playback but the video mixdown doesn't render correctly until the generator effect is rendered. 

    This must be a bug. For window burns, this effectively doubles your export time.

    Vinnie on the Avid FB page said it was a logged fault, so I rolled back from 1018.12.3 to 2018.12.1, and it's working fine now.

    It's really puzzling that something like this would get broken with an update.
