    Export OMF to ProTools from 23.98 Project

    Hey Guys

    We're kind of stumped here on some really important cuts with tight deadlines. We're new to tapeless workflow and are figuring it out as we go. The problem we have is we can't seem to find a good way to export to .OMF for sound mix.

    Our workflow:

    - remove all vid. tracks, split sequence into subsequences of acts

    - highlight seq. in-out

    - transcode and convert audio format to AIFF-C

    -open new transcoded seq. export seq. as AAF

    - in AAF settings

    • export as aaf
    • use marks / enabled tracks
    • include all audio tracks
    • export method: consolidate media
    • handle: 150 frames
    • include rendered audio effects
    • render all audio effects
    • convert sample rate to 48khz
    • convert bit depth to 16bit
    • convert audio file format to aiff-c
    • audio: embedded in aiff

    We then send the Aiff files to our sound mixer and he uses protools for the mix, sends it back, and all is great !

    This works perfectly in 29.97 workflows, however since we have started shooting tapeless on c300 and 5d / 7d, we cant use this workflow anymore. When we try to transcode or export we get multiple errors, "Assertion Failed: False

    File:/volumes/data/snapshots/relengsnow3_1354110316/coresw/ame/projects/mac/../../src/msm/MultipleDescriptor.c, line: 111"

    I should also note that our workflow for these sequences is we create a new project, bring in the media via link to ama volume at 28:1 res.

    Any help/ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks !

    AFAIK you need to transcode to Avid MXF media before you can export an AAF.

    We did that. The media was first ingested as mxf media.

    link to ama > transcode to 28:1 ..
