Well, this all may be moot, because the videographers themselves haven't
gotten back to me. I was just trying to learn how I could best
interoperate with them. I won't be doing any of the video editing myself,
and ultimately, I'll just give them a stereo track, and I was hoping I
could also carry along a timecode track to ease their job of sync'ing it
up. This is a university-level Student/professor group doing the
shooting, and I don't know if they're even going to the trouble of
sync'ing their cameras' clocks, much less prepared to provide me with any
form of clock sync. I'm just trying to get myself up to speed so that I
know how to deal with whatever they throw at me.

I've been told by a local friend that it's not worth the trouble. Video
is approx 30 FPS, and audio is 48k S/s, so alignment 'by ear' is 'good
enough'. That may be what they're planning to do anyway...

Reading the Ardour manual, and poking thru the menus, I found an option
to send MTC, but not one to receive MTC. I don't want to be responsible
for providing a clock to the video recorder(s). Ardour's timeline always
starts at 0:00, and I haven't found any option to use wall time instead.
If they were to try using MMC to sync the audio during post, it would
depend on both the DAW and the video editor using the same clock.
