Avid Experiments

Avid Experiments
If you have read any of my previous blog entries here you would know that I am a long time Final Cut Pro user, but since the beginning of this year I have been working at an offline edit house (in addition to the time I spend doing latenite things!) that primarily uses Avid on Macs. As we solely do offline editing here and all of the grading and online is done at other more specialised post production facilities, generally speaking we don’t have to worry too much about gamma, colour spaces and getting files in and out of various programs. Most of our jobs are shot on 35mm, and get telecined to DVCAM which we then edit in DV-PAL, export an EDL + OMF and we’re done. For RED Projects we normally get dumped a hard drive full of R3Ds which we convert to DNxHD using RED Rushes and bring all these files in Avid via an ALE. Everything is fairly simple and straight forward.
