Re: Edward Virtual Foley by Tovu Sound - Is it worth it?

I haven't found a commercial product yet that I like. The footsteps are either too clicky or sound too much like a clock ticking.

Just make your own. It isn't difficult once you understand how...

Re: Best workflow to match new cut of video?

I haven't been able to get an EDL for changes on a TV project for several years, in fact I can't even get simple change notes. When I ask I get a blank stare or am just told no, so I do it by hand....

Re: PT 12.5 Video Engine

I'm not an expert, but this is what I have found:

I believe the number at the end of the DNxHD codec name refers to the bitrate, so higher numbers are more taxing on your processors and lower...

Re: Dynamics for gun shots and other loud noises to keep them from peaking

If You are both editing and mixing and you can't make the guns sound loud enough, try different gunshot elements. When you have to restrict the peak level a lot then look for gunshots with more...

Re: Soundminer HD+, ReWire, Pro Tools 12. Mission impossible?

No Rewire problems here with SM v4.5 Pro and PT12.5HD. It works just as it always has. Don't know about SM HD+.

Re: PT 12.5 Video Engine

I used to use MPEG Streamclip but recently switched to ffmpeg which is several times faster. It seems to be able to use multiple cores much more efficiently. I'd say it is at least 4x faster than...

Re: RX4 Batch process

This may be remedied by the new release of RX5. Apparently there is a feature where multiple steps of processing can be executed with a single command. I don't know for sure, but one would hope...

Re: Today's PT 12 webinar….

I already bought the Pro Limiter a while ago and have owned Rivibe for several years, as well. It looks to me like it's a lot cheaper for me to just buy whatever other "Pro" plugins I might be...

Re: Do your hands ever get sore from repeatedly hitting shift to scroll?

I keep a trackpad just to the right of my trackball. If I want to scroll I move my hand over to the pad and swipe with two fingers left or right, up or down. It's the fastest, most ergonomic...

Re: PT12.1.0 Video Engine Problems

You always have the option of contacting Avid support. They helped me when I updated to PT11 and had a lot of problems.

Speaking of clean installs, how clean was it? You should probably totally...

Re: ADC and offline bounce questions

Here's the question: Is your bounce bus located at the input or the output of the final aux in the chain and does that aux contain a latency inducing plugin? If the bounce is from the final aux's...

Re: ADC and offline bounce questions

Re: ADC and offline bounce questions

re #2: Yes, I have found that ADC is disabled if I use an output as the rendering path. The audio will be offset later within the selection I am bouncing.

Also, I have read several sources that...

Re: PT 11.3.1 Avid Video Engine !

I had a lot of problems with my upgrade to PT11 on Yosemite 10.10 that turned out to be due to an incomplete uninstall of PT10. There was a hidden file that I couldn't find to delete, so I called up...

Re: Video Sync Offset in PT11 not that useful

You make a good point, the display's latency would not accounted for. My display's latency is pretty minimal so it's not a big issue.

Re: Video Sync Offset in PT11 not that useful

I thought I read somewhere that slaving both the Sync HD and a video card to a reference signal in PT11 and 12 locks the audio and video to the frame edge. If that is true, there would be no need...

Re: Video Offset " drifts " / shifts over time

Are you an editor or a mixer? ie., are you working with plugins instantiated on the tracks and with ADC on? I'm wondering whether somehow plugin latency issues might be at work here.

Also, are...

Re: PT12.1.0 Video Engine Problems
