    Potential VFX Export Info?

    I was wondering does anyone know if it is possible to have footage in your "project master" timeline with your projects correct timecode and etc, but then move some of that footage to a different sequence, but reference the "project master" timeline's timecode. That way when I send them a quicktime to reference it isn't say 30 sec of black and then picture and then 10 min of black (and etc). I trying to figure out how I would send info to a small vfx place, but minimize the amount of space for a quicktime they will be referencing that would match my timecode.

    I'm quite sure what I've typed is incredibly long winded and probably won't get across exactly what I hope to do, but here is to hoping someone might have an idea.

    If you create a sub sequence of the area to be worked on that subsequence will have the timecode from the original sequence.

    Export that and you have a file with that start timecode.

    When you get the new content back, as long as they have kept the timecode, you can AMA link and cut into the old timeline.

    Oh that's great news, I will be going that route then for sure as I can then export the QT with a TC layer for them and it will be small, awesome.

    Thanks for the reply

    Just make sure with some tests first. As always ;-)

    I did one test so far and they tell me that it should be just fine, so looks like this will work quite well.

    Thanks.
