Hello,
Just wanted to check in and see if we have any update about the additional example videos you discussed making.

I will also pass along this thread to the Product Manager in charge of MC>PT workflow at Avid. Thanks for all your feedback guys...

Tom
Any word on a workflow whitepaper or video? We're dealing with Cantar+MC silliness right this min.

There has been some serious radio silence on this thread regarding a white-paper and true real life instructional video on the subject.

I am curious though to hear about the Cantar and media-composer weirdness you are experiencing. What's the problem you are running into?

As I mentioned in the blog, you will want to ignore any rendered audio files from Media Composer - this causes potential mismatches. The cool thing is, once you get the AAF with rendered audio files from the video editor, you can then import it twice (once for the Field Recorder Workflow without any rendered files) and then separately (once with rendered files to hear what they intended and possibly keep in the temps and onward).

Cheers...
Still waiting...

You're going to be waiting a long time.

Avid needs to take the lead on this with the Digital Dailies house. Supposedly there's an SDK for them to use, but either a) it must be horribly inaccurate or out of date, and/or b) nobody uses it.

We've talked ourselves blue in the face with Avid in trying to get these and other issues addressed. Expand tracks does work better than it used to, but only if the (undocumented) end-to-end processes are followed by the recordist, the dailies house and the MC editor.

More to come...

I'm tacking onto the end of this thread in hopes of getting some clarity update on AAF/Field Recorder Workflow. After 3 seasons of picture cut on FCP our TV series NCISLA is migrating to AVID MC. With FCP I assembled the episodes with "Titan 4.x" and conformed cuts after that process using "Conformalizer" and good old EDLs which were run thru "Ediload" to make an FCP list work with "Titan". This approach has been stress tested so it is with some skepticism that I am looking into the AAF/FRW. In the demo video log it looks pretty fast but "Titan 4" on a quad Mac was very fast as well. It can do a 45 minute episode assembly in 15 to 20 minutes and then sync it in slightly less than real time.
So here are some questions I have.

1. Can you select an entire AAF sequence and have it link to the Sound Poly files?
2. Can the sound files be in a different folder?
3. Do the Polyfiles need to be "demulted" (Titan term)? If so I'm assuming Workspace performs that but how fast is that process?
4. After assembly I do a manual selection pass of the preferred mic channels and mute the others. We often see several picture versions so what happens to my selection tracks when we conform to the new cut? I DO NOT want to redo the selection process...it's laborious.
5. How does this all work with FX/Foley/ADR sessions which are created from scratch? I have a hunch that the AAF is no use conforming these sessions.
6. I've let the client know that I will want a solid EDL backup approach so that if everything goes south we can fall back on our tried and true workflow, but I've been told the Avid MC doesn't natively create EDL's and a third party plugin is need for that. Does anyone know if that is true? Hopefully that app can mine the meta data and create a "Titan" friendly EDL.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I welcome all comments
