EdiApps and macOS Mojave

Monday, 08 October 2018 00:22 Published in EdiApp Knowledge Base

Now that Avid have released Pro Tools 2019.5 and qualified it to run with macOS Mojave (10.14.4) * we tested our applications on a system with these installed.

All functions of our applications performed as expected including how they interact with Pro Tools. There are however some minor details regarding how our applications run on macOS Mojave.

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.

Reversioning Pro Tools mixes with EdiLoad

Wednesday, 21 February 2018 02:21 Published in EdiApp Knowledge Base

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.

EdiApps now compatible with macOS High Sierra

Wednesday, 27 September 2017 23:34 Published in EdiApp Knowledge Base

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.

Creating a Sync Sound Edit List with EdiLoad

Monday, 11 September 2017 06:17 Published in EdiApp Knowledge Base

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.

Have you been given a folder of WAV files and wished there was an easy way of loading them into a Pro Tools session with them all located to their individual timestamps? Now with EdiLoad v3.4 you can do just this using it’s WAV File List window.

Creating a Scene Change Track in EdiLoad

Wednesday, 19 July 2017 01:02 Published in EdiApp Knowledge Base

Have you ever wished you could see where a scene starts and ends in your Pro Tools timeline? Now with EdiLoad v3.4 it’s even easier to generate a Pro Tools track containing clips showing where each scene starts and ends. You can also include the description of each scene within the clip name.

Have you been given an AAF where the location audio clips have been taken from the camera? Wondering how you can conform or link these clips to your multi-track location WAV files?

In the following video I run through how EdiLoad can be used to modify different elements of an Edit List, either when imported from an EDL or AAF, so that each event in the list will link to the correct location WAV file.
