Mattias, as stated in numerous posts, I am a strong advocate of implementing playback of mixed frame and sample rates in Nuendo.
Nonetheless, I think we need to be a lot more assertive in demanding basic professionality and courtesy from our colleagues. Conforming to a standard format is not frippery, but very important for all subsequent stages, be it audio post, color grading, etc. If I’m, say, a cook on early shift in a restaurant and one of my responsibilities is to take some steaks out of the freezer so the late shift has them ready defrosted, and I don’t do this, I will get reprimanded or fired if this behavior is persistent, because I’m harming production down the line with my ignorance/carelessness/forgetfulness/laziness/incompetence. The same goes for editors who won’t conform their stuff to production format, and the consequences should be the same.
:geezer mode on: The trouble today is that anybody who’s watched a few YouTube tutorials can go and call themselves an “editor” and annoy the hell out of the rest of us with their half-baked skillset. :geezer mode off:
I for one refuse to accept this.
