You will be exporting your Avid sequence to an OMFI (Open Media Framework Interchange) file which then can be converted to a ProTools session. This will allow me to import all of your audio files in sync, the way they were edited in your Avid sequence, thus saving you time and money by not having to re-conform your audio from the source tapes. When digitizing your audio, be aware that it will be used for your final mix.
1) Preparing your sequence for export:
(unless there are specific fx that you want me to have, in which case you must render them)
2) Consolidating your audio media to an external drive:
3) Creating the OMF File:
4) Quicktime Video File:
Provide a Quicktime movie output with the file extension .mov and include the reference audio mix with a timecode window burn that matches the exported sequence.
For Media Composer Version 10:
Because Version 10 software allows multiple file digitization formats within a single sequence, and does not default to Sound Designer II in its General Settings, the standard OMF export process usually fails. For this reason, Version 10 offers an “AVID Links” option directly beneath the “export” option on the File menu.
Simply select the sequence to be exported (making certain it contains NO video layers), and choose “AVID Links” under the File menu. Select Digidesign Pro Tools and EmbedMedia in OMF file. This is basically an AIFC export, so handle length is not an option. You will not need to consolidate any media, because it will be embedded in the OMF sequence. Again, make sure the target drive can accommodate a rather large export.

Izotope RX6 Advanced
The works! Just in time to make use of Ambience Match & Match EQ on some new shows. This is the defacto standard for audio restoration and it just got a whole lot better!
Audio Ease Altiverb 7
The premiere convolution reverb now in up to 7.1 channels. This thing is sick! Just amazing on dialogue localization anywhere from a closet to a concert hall. Indespensable!
Loving the new features in this latest version! Clip effects especially is a welcomed addition and enhances workflow no end when working on clip based audio post projects.
SSD All The Way!
Updated all drives to super fast SSD. These new Oyen Digital drives are blazingly fast and quite sexy (for a drive) I might add!!
New pitch change plug-in from SoundToys. Sounds amazing and I've put it to good use on 8 Minutes, a new A&E series I'm mixing. I tried out everything available and this one sounded the best by far.
Unveil from Zynaptiq allows attenuating or boosting reverb components within a mixed signal. An almost magical plug-in that helps clean up dialog recorded in reverberant rooms such as hallways and bathrooms. Now thanks to Zynaptic you really can un-bake the cake!
Izotope RX5 is finaly here and it's an amazingly powerfull tool for all your noise reduction needs. I've been using it a lot in my work lately and loving the new GUI, it's faster and easier to use than ever! As they say; "The repair tool of choice for industry professionals, who save time every day transforming flawed audio into mesmerizing media".
