With the COVID-19 lockdown temporarily closing ADR studios around the world, sound post supervisors and editors have been creating ingenious ways of recording their ADR.
Apple released its latest major update for macOS called macOS Catalina (10.15) on October 7, 2019. One of the major changes in this update is that it will only allow 64-bit applications to run. We have been working this year to update our apps for 64-bit, and are excited to announce that the following have been released:
Since releasing EdiCue v1 nearly 12 years ago to the day, I’ve received an abundance of user feedback and feature requests for the application. As I live in Australia, I would implement an update while clients slept, where possible, so they could wake up to an email containing a link to download a pre-release version. Other requests required extra patience.
We are pleased to announce that Sounds In Sync will be exhibiting at the AES show in New York, Oct 17-19. Meet founder and developer Mark Franken for a demo of any of our products and see how they integrate with Pro Tools to perform a variety of tasks including cueing and recording ADR, conforming location WAV files and re-conforming Pro Tools sessions.
All functions of our applications performed as expected including how they interact with Pro Tools. However macOS Mojave now displays additional security messages when our apps are used in the following way:
If you are running macOS 10.13.4 or above you may have seen the following message when you run an application:
We are pleased to announce that all of our iLok enabled applications can now be licensed using iLok Sharable Licenses. This allows our applications to be authorized from a license server on a local network, eliminating the need to have a physical iLok dongle connected to every computer running one of our applications.
Over the years we've had several clients ask for help with jobs where they've wanted to use EdiLoad to re-cut a finished mix to create a new delivery version of a TV show or film. We call this process "reversioning". This task can be performed in a number of ways, depending on how the picture editor creates the new delivery version. So to help, we've created the demo video below which shows how the completed mixes of 12 TV episodes can be recut to create the sound track of a feature film length version. The video not only shows how you re-cut your Pro Tools session with EdiLoad, but what you need to supply your picture editor in order to perform this task in the most efficient manner.
We are pleased to announce that all of our applications are compatible with Apple's latest operating system macOS High Sierra (10.13).
We successfully tested the functions of our applications that interface with Pro Tools on macOS 10.13.2, as this is the version of macOS that Avid have qualified Pro Tools v12.8.3 with. For more information on what versions of macOS are compatible with each version of Pro Tools, see the Pro Tools Operating System Compatibility Chart.
Have you worked on a show where the picture editor has edited an alternate take of dialogue for an on-screen line and not provided the original sync for the shot? Well to save time asking your editorial team for an AAF of the sync sound for these shots, you may be able to create this sync sound track yourself using EdiLoad and the Pro Tools field recorder functions.
