    Subclips with Motion Effect

    How are you guys dealing with footage that was shot offspeed (e.g. 50fps) only for the reason to have the option to do speedchanges. So I watch everything in realtime and the assistant is doing subclips from motion effect clips with synced audio.

    But the biggest problem with that is that AAF transfer to resolve is not working properly, the timecode doesn't match.

    See also this one (I postet it in Feature Request but it's basically a bug):

    Hi all, this is still an issue 18 months later, on MC 7 &  8. Many scripted shows shoot offspeed and then need motion effects to bring them up to realtime playback, with synced audio. As soon as a subclip is created of the motion effected shot, all reference to the motion effect is lost, other than that the source timecode advances by 2 frames (or whatever) in the timeline. EDL, aaf, bins etc., when transferred to other systems for conforming, don't have any motion effects present. This makes conforming these sequences an exercise in matchframing and adding motion effects manually. Add speed ramping into the mix and it's a very slow process.

    Does anyone have any suggested workarounds? Or even better, is this on Avid's radar?

    Cheers, Peter Millington.

    Re: Subclips with Motion Effect

    I see a lot of people dealing with that problem, especially assistant editors who have to match frame all motion effect subclips before sending the aaf. I wonder why nobody is complaining about it in the Avid Forum.

    I finally found some time to send it to the support, let's see if it get's a case # and a fix, soon.
