    Hi folks, hoping you might be able to help me with this headache. I work on a drama that's shooting abroad for five days. Due to the post schedule we need to get the footage back daily.

  • best way to take clips from timeline to use in a bin?

    Hey everyone, Been working with MC for a few months now but there's still a lot I need to familiarize myself with.

  • Music Video, RED footage - Workflow?

    So here's the deal. I have Red footage, most of it shot in 4K (1,9.1), but some in 3K. I don't think we'll need the final video in 4K, it will probably end up in 2K. I have about 1,3GB of Red-footage. I have AMA-linked all the footage into Avid, and my computer is working big time now transcoding... (read more)

  • Multi Track Title Workflow?

    Hi, I don't understand how to work with titles on multiple tracks in Avid. For example, I have a sequence where a passage is read and each line fades up as it is read, so the entire passage will be visible at the end.
