How are people working with multitrack audio from shoots that isn’t present in the main OMF / AAF export of the picture cut?
On my last job they gave me two exports from the picture cut, one was a standard OMF with the offline audio (including the camera sound). The other was a linked AAF that linked to the multitrack rushes. This came up as 6-track polyfiles which I split using “convert tracks”. They made this linked AAF using Automatic Duck to process the FCP sequence.
However, on my latest job, they are using Avid and they haven’t been able to generate anything that links to rushes, so I’ve had to go old school, using the text EDL to do a conform with SADiE (which I happen to have), pointing at "reels i.e. folders on the rushes drive. Then I can export from that back to Nuendo with AES31.
I see that Pro Tools has the very useful field recorder function which will match separate rushes audio to a designated guide track (from the picture edit) according to various criteria . But only the HD version of PT which I don’t have.
What do you do? Am I missing an easy way with Nuendo?
