Default Production Sound on Multitrack Disk Recorder

(Sorry, posted this on the wrong forum first:)

We're about to receive our first project recorded with a Harddisk-recorder (Cantar-X, to be specific).
The recordings will be up to six tracks 24/48; for editing, there will be a separate mixdown to stereo 16/48. Editing will be done on AVID (not known which one).
They'll shoot at 25 fps, - so we'll have to pitch dialogue for cinema release -, but at least there shouldn't be any sync issues (knocking on wood).
Obviously, we'll have to postconform in order to use the original files rather than the mixdown stereo 16/48 files which AVID would export as OMF.
Does anybody have good/bad experiences with this kind of workflow, and what tools would you recommend?

Any info much appreciated!

Cheers
Florian

****please*** stop cross-posting every time you write something. I posted a reply to the other section. This clutters up the threads and is very annoying to read. thanks.

Frank,

Really sorry about cross-posting. One wrong click. I even mailed the DUC to remove the post in 'Tips&Techniques'

Well, they're about to start shooting, and nothing's been done wrong yet.
The recordist did mention naming issues, so he's obviously aware of trouble potential. I have never touched Cantar, but generally would expect naming to be important with any multitrack files. He seems to have a choice of interleaved/multiple mono BWF to send to post.

The editing room is not yet decided, so I don't know the editing system.
We are on OsX, PT6.7.
Somewhere in the basement we still have an old mix card, and a hibernating postconform; so if all else fails, I should be able to use this for conforming in OS9 (don't know about the 24bit files in Mix though).
But obviously I'd prefer a more contemporary solution.

I would much appreciate your advice (once the fury over cross-posting has calmed down..)

Cheers
Florian

I assume you speak german, since you are located in zurich. I have a tested workflow for a cantar shoot. but it´s in german. too lazy to translate...;-)

Send me an address and I´ll mail it to you.

Frank.
