I don t even transcode or consolidate (short turnaround)... just link, edit, finish, export, backup source files & small avid media files folders (renders & music imports). Solid workflow now. It s br

Two simple questions… searching the Arri Site but can't find the answer
by Douglas Ryan 6 years ago
I have two, what I think are straightforward, Arri questions. 1. Can you record Arri raw while at the same time recording to ProRes or DNxHD on SxS cards I'm assuming if you do the TC would match. 2.

1.) Yes you can. Timecode and file names match, but it doesn't eliminate the need to QC the ARRIRAW files. 2.) I don't use ARRIRAW convertor so I cannot answer. Michael

Re: Title tool repositioning

I've always seen Title Tool as a good scratch pad for text. The guides, positioning, video background, it's all a crap shoot. If you want repeatable precision, look elsewhere. (which you already know.

Thanks. Since Avid throws up no obstacles to working easily, the focus, like with a good musical instrument, becomes about what creative ideas and technical skills the editor can bring to his her work
