    Daytime timecode + slowmotion + autosequence workflow

    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if any of you have a workflow for this particular situation. For a small production wildlife show our cameraman is daytime TC locked to our soundguy. If we switch between slowmotion shots and normal shots we get TC overlap / breaks, because the slomo clip is stretched out and longer than realtime. Camera TC basically goes 'back in time' whenever he syncs back to our soundguy for normal speed recording. This becomes quite confusing in post trying to sync video and audio using autosequence.

    Any advice is welcome, thanks.

    Re: Daytime timecode + slowmotion + autosequence workflow

    Why are you using autosequence to sync?  Why not identify which shots are are regular speed and use autosync using timecode to sync just those?

    Re: Daytime timecode + slowmotion + autosequence workflow

    From viewing the bin, there is no way in telling which clips are slomo because they're saved as 25 fps clips. (camera sony f5). Because we have a lot of raw material and unfortunately no people logging I have yet to find a proper workflow for this. I have suggested switching the TC to 00:00:00:00 just for the slomo shots so that I can identify them easier (we dont record audio during slomo).

    Re: Daytime timecode + slowmotion + autosequence workflow

    The problem that I see with doing that is that inevitably they'll switch to slo-mo/00:00:00:00 and forget to switch the timecode back.  I think that you'll just be exchanging one problem for another.  What I would be more inclined to do is live with what they're currently doing, but change the reel ID on the slomo media after you ingest it.  That way you won't get caught with duplicate or reverse timecodes.

    How about a 2-Video track Auto-Sequence? You isolate the Slomos and AutoSequence them separately. Then add on V2 to other AutoSequence on V1.

    You can maybe experiment with adding a real-time Timewarp speedup. Maybe it works...?

    When editing from this two-track Auto Sequence, you use matchframe first on the Slomo Clips, (which you could of course Color ds.ifferently from the normal speed shots).

    i’m doing something like this now on double system film xfers and problem ematic wav files that don’t quite match.
