The Timecode effect (effects>text>timecode) will add a timecode, but it's measured in HH:MM:SS:FF rather than milliseconds. You could do it with an expression by adding a text layer, and applying an expression to the Source Text property. Below is an expression that returns what you want. To apply it, alt-click on the stop watch for the text layers Source ...
Various places I've worked have found different solutions. Some record the LTC from a broadcast video tape to an unused track. Some will reuse a track from an earlier project. The first is slow (1:1), and both are inflexible. Hardware TC generators are flexible, but it's still real-time creation. I offer a free 32-bit Windows utility that can generate an ...
Libav has the tool avconv, which allows you to do that with the video filter setpts=PTS-STARTPTS. I haven't tried this, but the following should do the trick for you: avconv -i in.vob -vf 'setpts=PTS-STARTPTS' -c:a copy -c:v copy out.vob For more information you can check out http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/man1/avconv.1.html
I know this is a very old Q, but it should be pointed out that a 'negative timecode' makes no sense. The SMPTE frame before 00:00:00:00 is 23:59:59:29. The namespace for drop frame (and non-drop) codes is already well-defined -- no need to postulate negative values. If there are systems or programs that use this notation, they should be rethought.
