Turnover bins

I was having a problem getting a change list of 2 of our sequences, so I sent a bin to a fellow assistant editor who started raving about something that I thought made sense and helps me, but apparently, it was pretty exciting in a postproduction kind of way, so I thought it worth sharing:I have structured my turnover bins so that they contain all of the information that I need and provide a straightforward template for turnover and changes. The size / complexity of the sequences dictates how ma...  और पढ़ें

Copying Media Files - Unity

Sorry for the long hiatus everyone. Work, work, work, work...you know the drill.Just getting through dailies on a show and was told about an interesting bug when copying over media files into your Unity. Basically, if you copy your media to one of your Unity partitions, make sure you keep the user folder that Unity has with in the OMFI MediaFiles folder closed when you copy them over. If you open the Unity User folder (ex. ZJustin), and do the copying, you run the risk of a file of the media ...  और पढ़ें

Avid data entry tip

Are you sick and tired of Cmd-V, pasting your way down a entire bin of takes where you want the same information applied to all the takes you have selected? I.E. date shot. Of course you could export the bin, open it in a spreadsheet and do a fill down command, re-import the bin, but who wants to deal with that?My friends, our time has arrived.I received this info from a Avid engineer who saw me doing this and said "we fixed that."I'm not sure which version the fix came in on, but I am working o...  और पढ़ें

Production Sound

It happens often. You cut to the best performance of a character, and another character steps on the line. Picture departments often will find an alternate reading to "clean up" the area were the overlap of lines happen. However, it is still important that sound editorial has access to the original line reading.So what you do in these situations is keep the original production in one of your tracks, but bring it down to zero (infinity on the audio mix tool). That way, you get your clean line...  और पढ़ें

Commenting

Information is my friend, so I am always looking at things and trying to find new ways to organize that info or refine existing info.So, in the AVID, they give you the standard array of columns, which is growing by leaps and bounds, but not always the way I want or need.Add a few new columns and name them:Comments_PixComments_SndComments_MxComments_VFXComments_DIComments_Whatever...When you export to a codebook, your comments are broken out by category making it really easy to do a search for so...  और पढ़ें

Bin possession

There are times when multiple people might want to open a bin without taking ownership possession of that bin.As the assistant, I might need to grab a sequence out of a bin, which my editor goes into frequently, but if I have it open and he wants to get into the bin it is locked to him as a user.The way around it is to hold down the option key on Mac [Alt on PC] while you open the bin from the project window. This will open it for you with a red lock, but it is available for ownership by the oth...  और पढ़ें

Change Lists

The change list tool in the Avid is unmatched by other systems. But because it is, in the end, just a program, it is very important that the picture department makes sure these lists are streamlined and makes sense. The simple truth is that I have heard from numerous sound departments that they get change lists that are unreadable. This should never be the case and can easily be avoided:1) Know your sequences. And once you have set up your structure for picture and track, be careful not to s...  और पढ़ें

VFX Naming

When naming VFX, there is a standard in place within many companies that makes things very smooth for all involved:1) Make sure when naming shots, always use three numbers (Sc 8o would be 080).2) Use the scene number to label your VFX shots for easy locating.3) When naming multiple shots with in a scene, you should label each shot in increments of 10.Let's say you have 5 shots in Scene 80, your shots, in sequence order, would be - 080x010, 080x020, 080x030, 080x040, o80x050.4) If later, you spot...  और पढ़ें

Naming conventions for turnover

Generally speaking, I fall into the "more information is better information" column.Along those lines, I wanted to touch on naming conventions for sequence turnover.I am a huge fan of using version numbers rather than dates for sequences.Sure, many people will say that dates make more sense, but there are several reasons why I go with versions over dates.Versions are absolute. You will never have 2 versions with the same number. You could have 2 or more versions of a sequence on a single date. I...  और पढ़ें

Watermarks

Watermarks are a good way of protecting the project you are on from piracy. Basically, when you are creating your property burn-in for your reel, you put the initials of who the sequence is going to in the middle of the frame.Then in the title tool, highlight the initials (or facility name) and bring the opacity of the titles to about 90percent. Bring the opacity of the shadow to around 88percent. Play with it so it is visible on light scenes, but not too much on dark scenes.By doing this, yo...  और पढ़ें

Saving DVD Files

The Assistants on the show I am working on are doing a real cool trick. After they make a DVD output, they load the DVD onto the editorial computer that has a external hard drive that contains back-ups of all their DVD outputs.What they do, is open up the DVD and option-drag the Video_TS folder into a folder on the hard drive with the sequence name and date (make sure this folder does not have spaces).Then, if you need to make another copy down the road, you open up toast, drag that folder on t...  और पढ़ें

Preview temp tracks

Credit for this tip goes to editor Peter Teschner.This tip was so perfect that I will be stealing it in the future.Normally, after a preview temp dub, I would ask for and import LT/RT DME [DIA/MX/FX] tracks to place into our timeline.One thing that had always bothered me was dealing with cleaning up the BG tracks for subsequent changes with the hard fx built into the tracks. I would just have to spend far more time to make it work.Peter said that he would bring in a mono dialog track, mono hard ...  और पढ़ें

OMF media in a MXF project

We just started a project using Adrenaline HD with DNXHD-36.Based on posts I had seen about issues with MXF audio compatibility, I decided to split the audio off to it's own workspaces, using the OMF/AIFF format instead of MXF. The problem is that if you are in a DNX project, the Avid only refreshes the AVID Mediafiles directories, NOT the OMFI Mediafiles directories, leaving new audio offline. This is a known bug.The workaround is to create a SD project and switch to that once you have imported...  और पढ़ें

AVID bin sorting

9 or more times out of 10, I find myself wanting a different sort order than what is presented by either telecine TC or clip names, particularly if there are multiple cameras. I.E. if you have English slating, there would be no relevance between slating and actual scenes. If you have multiple cameras and wanted all the Acams, then all the Bcams, or you wanted -1/A then -1/B etc... whatever order you wish.The answer was to create a custom column called "Sort." Using this column, I just start at 1...  और पढ़ें

Resizes

One annoying thing about doing a resize in the Avid is that you lose your mattes. Well, there is a simple trick to get around this. When starting up a show, I make a bin called Avid FX Templates for Avid Fx I use frequently. One of these is a Pic in Pic Effect that is used to keep the mattes of the show.Take a clip from your show and put on a Picture-In-Picture Effect. Make sure you check Fixed Aspect and set the scaling to 100 percent. Next, check swap sources - the clip should become blac...  और पढ़ें

Garbage in, Garbage out

One thing I will always remember from my first introduction to Avid was the term, "Garbage in, garbage out." I would say the most important thing a Picture Department can do to aid the work flow of a project is to double check your data each day during Dailies.These days, telecine houses can insert numerous burn-ins to your picture/mattes. I like to error on more - Key numbers, tape time code, sound time code, tape #, camera roll, lab roll and sound roll (including MOS). This gives you a grea...  और पढ़ें

Re-balance Change Lists

Re-balancing reels on a show is always a pain...but a common occurrence in feature films. The first thing you should do as soon as you construct your reels on a show, is to place the reel number in the reel# column in your bin (you can find this in headings in the bin menu). So Reel 4 would have 4 in your reel column. Always make sure you keep doing this as you work on your reels.Let's say you have a re-balance between reels 3 and 4. Open up film scribe and then bring up the change list tool...  और पढ़ें

Identifying Music and Sound Effects

When brining in Sound Effects and Music from your source, it is important that you place all pertinent information into the Clip Name.For example, say you are bringing in the main title music from American President. Now, Main Title is the name for tracks in many a score, which can be confusing when trying to identify the clip when turning over. So, in the Clip Name, I would label it as follows: American President_Track01_Main Titles. When turning over an OMF to your Music Editor, he/she will...  और पढ़ें

Feet/Frm & Timecode Burn-In

Have telecine layoff a tape with a Blue Screen, Feet & Frame burn-in, Timecode Burn-in.1) Digitize this tape in to your project from the top of the hour.2) Create a Property of Title that includes: A number to go over the hour so that you can change this based on reel (ie Reel 4 would be 04); Reel and version; Property of (Studio); Initials (for who you send reel to) in the center of the screen - bring opacity to about 90% of the initials so they become a watermark.3) Put the Bluescreen and ...  और पढ़ें

Managing Tracks - Picture Editorial

One of the most important things you can do as a Picture Assistant, is to manage your tracks properly during the first cut and keep to that management. This makes turnover to the other Editing Departments much easier...and better for them as well. Here is a sample of how I do my shows:COLOR CODE YOUR CLIPS - Color coding SFX, MX, VFX, etc. a specific color in your bin when you bring these clips in, gives you a visual reference in your timeline.In Timeline Menu, make sure to check Source, Local...  और पढ़ें
