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.

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.

Are you having problems getting an AAF or OMF that contains the audio that you need, or that can be used to expand your location WAV files in Pro Tools?

In the following video I run through everything you need to know. I’ll explain why you would want to conform your original location WAV files (rather than use an AAF or OMF), how to conform your rushes using EdiLoad and the Pro Tools field recorder functions, and finally, one of the sync issues you might encounter when performing this process.

Transferring ADR Cues - Part 1

Monday, 22 February 2016 17:35 Published in EdiApp Knowledge Base

Being able to transfer ADR cue data from one system or application to another can save hours of manual cueing, or copy and pasting of individual data fields. However, the most common way of transferring this data is via a text file, and there are several things about this method that can get you stuck. When dealing with non-English text, or transferring between different operating systems, there’s a good chance your data won’t come across as expected.

While printing ADR cues in EdiCue, text characters can sometimes be displayed incorrectly. If this is happening to you, you probably have a 'text encoding' issue.
