POST EDL (Every Day Learn) - Tip 2: OMF/AAF Imports

08-15-2014 10:00 AM

Having imported an OMF/AAF from the on-line video, I choose to duplicate the OMF import tracks. I then have the original set for reference which I then inactivate and hide.
Next I turn OFF automation follows edit, (I don’t want dirty automation).
Then I MOVE (not copy) the media from the dupe tracks to the correct audio tracks (dial, music fx etc). This means I can see if I miss anything, as it will be left in the dupe tracks. The other set I have as a perfect reference (“I am sure that was in the OMF” says the director earnestly….)
