Hi There -
Okay here’s the story.
Just landed my first Ad Campaign composing gig. Put together three five minute pieces of music for a major car manufacturer to use in their branding videos for a new vehicle. The good new is that I submitted three temp tracks (actually completed pieces), without video reference, which the client loves and is using. Yes!
So here is my question for all you experienced folks:
This is the first time I have done any work in Nuendo with video. I bought the DAW for this day, and now I need a quick education on the best way to work efficiently.
The client has sent me back the completed videos that included different sections of the three pieces of music I created for their campaign. All of them start with about one minute from the same piece, and they each differ a bit after that with regards to musical arrangement. My job will be to take bits and pieces of each of my sessions and align and sweeten based on the video editors arrangements of my music.
The videos have been delivered to me as QuickTime (29.97) with a music/VO track. I have imported the vids into Nundo without issue and all is good from that standpoint.
- What will be the best way for me to approach this?
- Should I produce stems of the mixed pieces and import them into one session that has all four vids? Then do my edits
and musical adds?
- What ruler format(s) should I use to get the most precision alignment for my edits? Each piece of music is a little bit
different tempo. I assume I should set up a tempo track to ensure ease of editing?
- Should I use Musical or Linear time base?
- Any other considerations?
All help is sincerely appreciated. This is a good break for my fledgling company, and I want to ensure I deliver the completed edited music by deadline, which is this coming Friday… Yee Haw.
