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.
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.
