Re: About To Jump Ship

Well if it makes you feel better, my main system is a G5 running PT8. There are actually plugins I could by that run on it but I have what I need and if I upgraded not only would it cost a fortune...

Re: Best way to convert Sound Designer II files to wav?

Well since nobody mentioned it SoundMiner, at least the version I have, will read and convert SD2 files.

As to the "it will open old sessions" part, it seems they were correct in that the sessions...

Re: Alternatives to Pro Tools - Pro and Cons

Well I come at this from a somewhat different place than many of you since I'm doing post for film and video. I have and still am looking for a decent alternative.

The reason I'm looking is that...

Re: Video Engine Frame Rate? Red 23 fps?

So this is not totally true. h.264 can be positionally accurate all you have to do is have it drop a keyframe on every frame. An easy setting that still gets you a reasonable file size and every...

Re: PT 10 CPTK Workflow / Stumper Help

I've never used the "field recorder" function so I can't help you there.
For the music I would clone the music tracks and take the clones and pull out the handleson checkerboarded tracks.
Then I...

Re: remote recorder

I have used the H4n and own the DR40, and the Zoom H2, and a MixPre and a Marantz PMD671.

The Zooms have all felt light duty, and most I have seen have had parts broken off and parts of the...

Re: Purchased Pro Tools 9 used

You should be able, if the seller was legit, to transfer everything into your name. For iLok assets you need to have the seller transfer them to your account. That will cost $25 a pop. But it...

Re: Conforming a session - strange EDL?

FCP can export and EDL but not a change note so how can you conform with just the EDL? Or did I miss something.

BTW I've had more success using XML exports from FCP (with Conformalizer - thank...

Re: Anyone else been forced to turn their back on the industry?

It's a roller coaster ride for sure. I started out in theatre so I'm kind of used to the ride. I was in the Bay Area (SF) and post there has just about died as far as big projects go. When I...

Re: Foley - Sound effects for samplers...

First since nobody else mentioned it Foley is always capitalized.

Re: Dialogue editing and sweetening up final mix

Also it's kind of a bad sign when the sound of the promo for a DVD on getting great sound is, well, not great. I would not be happy is that was the way my track sounded. One would think that the...

Re: Production Effects in the Center Speaker?

I think this brings up an interesting split. The above is not the way 99.9% of big american films are done.

So it depends somewhat on what your aiming for.

Re: Pro Tools 10 Using it and Loving it!

Seriously? You had more than 256 tracks in an edit session.

Maybe it's because I started out when PT maxed (practically speaking) at 16 voices so track management is kind of built into my psyche...

Re: Pro Tools 10 Using it and Loving it!

Thanks everybody.
I'm feeling better about the advantages.

Speed and AS are probably the tipping points.

Music folks got some big MIDI upgrades and notation editing ,a bunch of VI. So this...

Re: Pro Tools 10 Using it and Loving it!

OK I realized that "post" was too broad a topic and I'm really talking more about editorial post and mixing small projects, I'm going to a stage for large projects.

Re: Pro Tools 10 Using it and Loving it!

I was one who was in a bit of sticker shock. I may actually soon be gearing up for a big project so I am very interested in the upgrade.

Re: Pro Tools 10 Using it and Loving it!

Glad it has some positives. I wasn't seeing a lot that made me want to up date and then I saw the price! $1K for a software upgrade? And still no bins.
Clip gain is a plus.

Re: Plugins & new careers

Oh, plugins.

Rx would be high on the list after that the Massey L2007 is a constant but TL Space is pricier so I would probably opt for that then buy the Massey plugins.

Back to your post goal....

Re: Does Avid even care about ChangeNotes anymore? Is the Changenote dead?

Well then get the EDL's from picture and use Conformalizer to generate the change note and hand that change note to your editors.

Half the time the change notes from picture are wrong anyway. I...

Re: Difference between 5.1 and 5.1 discrete

Well there are 5.1 streams as in what is sitting on most of your DVD's. That is an integrated and compressed 5.1 as opposed to 6 separate feeds.
