Andor TIFF timestamps are missing or incorrect

However even the OME timestamp metadata does not seem to meaningfully correspond to the timing values as seen in the iQ software. 
In the uploaded Andor multi-TIFF image “MOVIE1A_BFLAT.tif” there are 250 frames in total, but in XML only 50 of the Planes have PlaneTiming DeltaT.
The dataset tested has 4 dimensions:
- Time (5 repeats)
- XY (5 fields)
- Z (10 planes)
- Wavelength (1 wavelength)
Also no Name=Timestamp fields are in OriginalMetadata unlike “prettyimage.tif” which is just CT and imports timestamps as expected.

See files in data/andor/pariksheet.
