Before a dialogue editor can begin crafting the conversations of an episode or reel in a feature film, they require all channels or mics that were recorded on location, presented in their DAW timeline as per the picture editors audio edit.
EdiLoad v5 has been released with some great new features. Now supporting Apple Silicon processors, the main update for EdiLoad v5 has been the addition of the new assembly window.
EdiLoad v4 has been released with a swag of timesaving new features. Now 64-bit and compatible with macOS Catalina, the main update for EdiLoad has been to provide the option to import AAF and FCP7 XML files (XMLs designed for Final Cut Pro 7 and now exported by Adobe’s Premiere Pro). These files can be imported into the main window, when you are exporting conform reference tracks for example, or they can be imported into the compare window when comparing edit lists for picture changes.
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.
