I was the sole engineer on those. And it wasn’t recently.
This makes sense - if you aren’t dealing with other people - the whole process can be controlled. However, if I dictate to the picture post people what >I need - maybe it would work.
Thanks for pointing out the pitfalls about fades.
If it’s pretty “pure” dialog editing then fine, but to me it starts getting a bit annoying when I have to adjust my workflow to make transfers easier. And >for me that means if I’m intending to do a pass of production sound editing I probably want to do restoration and EQ as well at least, and that poses >issues when transferring since I’m not transferring plugins across with AAF. And so if I then decide to render effects of various sorts that’s all fine I >suppose but I lose the ability to undo that after the transfer, which is inconvenient.
The proposed system will be used for Dialog editing ONLY. No SFX or Music editing. I also don’t mind working in a destructive manner, rendering all edits before passing on the stems to whoever.

I successfully made AFF from Nuendo 10 to ProTools 2019 with Atmo+Sfx stems for feature movies for several times. No problem was noticed on >receiving side.
This is good. Do you remember if the AAFs that you delivered were opened on a PT 2019 PC Windows or PT 2019 Mac?

When you say it supports “Clip Level (not envelopes)”, are you saying that the AAF standard doesn’t support breakpoint level automation, like the kind that is “written” by using a fader in real time?
It’s even worse from PT to Nuendo as PT only tenderer fades to AAF, so you won’t get any actual/dynamic fades data in that direction.
Interesting - thanks for pointing out this pitfall.
One new concern I just thought about - is what about “Folder Tracks” this new feature Pro Tools is advertising. How will AAF handle that. If in the source system, they used folder tracks, can those folder tracks be collapsed into regular Mono Tracks (of course this will have to be done from the source system before AAF export).
