How are negative timecodes handled with drop-frame:

  • Is the frame before -00:00:59:29 labelled -00:00:01:02 (symmetric), or
  • Is the frame after -00:01:00:01 labelled -00:00:59:28 (regular)?

Taking into account that

  • frame dropping works on a 10min-regular basis
  • project offsetting by a multiple of 10min should keep frame dropping at the same positions

I guess the correct way of doing this is on a regular basis.
