Good morning folks. I'm trying out Match Box and may be missing a simple step:
Match Box does not "see" my tracks when I select the regions with the I beam markers.

As shown in the You Tube video seems pretty simple, but there's no wave forms in the MB windows. What obvious steps am I missing? Thank You!
Roger

If you can't see the audio wave form you probably have audio tracks hidden?

The blue "A" button bottom left. Or you've disabled the tracks and have those hidden (the button with the big X, bottom left)

Hi Frank. I did check those buttons to make sure. Here are the steps I took:


I launched Match Box.
I launched ProTools with the original mix and new mix/cut from the editor in the same session.
I highlighted the regions to be conformed and hit the "Launch Re-conform" button as shown in the You Tube video. Nothing happens.
What's the Match Box Helper plugin's role in all this?

Do I have to load sequences into Match Box manually?
Justin at MB indicated that MB will automatically load the clips to be conformed.
Thank you for the help.

Roger

Hi there,

I think you are misunderstanding how MB works. While it conforms your ProTools session it first needs to find out what to change by comparing the old and new sequences based on AAF, Audio, Video, EDLs. It doesn't read your PT session, it reads the data from the cutting room and finds picture and/or audio changes and then re-conforms your PT session.

I strongly recommend to watch the quick start guide video as there's too many details to explain in one response here. Also the other videos about re-conforming. There's a bit of RTFM to do if you are starting from scratch.

I guess you just have an empty MB launched (no content in OLD, NEW and MATCHES timeline inside MB)? There's no data in MB so it won't conform anything at this point so hitting the re-conform button won't do anything.
So yes you'll have to load video, or audio guide, or AAF or EDL or all of the the above to give it something to work with.

F.

does anyone know a way to have Matchbox compare the audio (editor's mix) of two video files without having to extract the audio first?

Good question. I couldn't figure it out. It would be nice if it was an option when importing video.
