    Conform Avid Project 2k

    Hello,

     

     

    I’m doing an assistant job for a vfx house.

     

    We have the AVID DNX project and need to conform with the original media (RED, ALEXA, Blackmagic...).

    At first we just had to conform raw material, therefore we used da vinci resolve.

     

     

    Now we got a trailer sequence which we have to conform und exprt as a 2k-dpx sequence.

    Several effects are uses in the sequence, that da vinci does not understand.

     

     

    Now we booked an AVID DS to try it.

     

    Is this the way it will work or will there also be problems??

     

    Any other suggestions?

     

     

    Thanks for your help!

    DS does support 2K and greater. You just need to send the AFE from MC to DS and then point that to the original source files.

    Used to do it on our old DS but it now gathers dust in a corner....

    Make sure your DS version is compatible with the AFE made from your MC version!

    It is AVID DS 10.5, and AVID MC 6.

     

    What kind of project do we have to set up? I'm kind of confused because of the different cameras used.

    Also, be aware that you should create the AFE on the OS that the project was created on.  So if you did the offline on a Mac, create the AFE there.  On a PC, create the AFE there.  There is a MC bug related to this.

    As for setting up the project, do you mean in DS or MC?  If DS, you really need an experienced DS operator to do this conform for you as setting up a 2K workflow is specialized.
