The best way I know of giving the editor what they may want, and satisfying
all of your other worry's, is to request from your post house, that they
simply burn in the
SMPTE 3-line standard into vitc. It works. You get a clean copy with just the
letterbox. You can then use the afterburner to make a dub with window's for
whom ever may request it. The 3-line standard consist of 1) Timecode 2)
2) Production code, meaning audio timecode.

Hope this helps,
