Major Fonts problem moving between cmputers

by Stephen Mark 2 years ago
I think the answer is if you plan to share bins between two different Avids, keep the font set to the default appFont. I've only encountered this problem when the font has been changed in the system w
Best practices for sharing a project between two computers or drives

I'm teaching an editing class at a school whose computers have Premier Pro CS 6. I've never used the program professionally so I'm trying to learn it as I go, figuring I'll pick it up quicker than the

I wanted to use Media Encoder to convert some XDCAM footage to ProRes. I imported the footage, selected all, and applied a ProRes preset. That seemed to work for globally setting the preset. But I wan

reducing 8 track audio clips to 1 work track

Hi Matt. I'm a terrible source for FCP info. My problem with the indy feature -- which never did get resolved to my satisfaction -- was that it had been completely shot before anyone gave any thought
Problem opening psd file containing video and a filter in After Effects

I'm have an older version, so not sure about CS6. See if the PSD will work without the filter. It may be that the PS filter you are using is not available in AE. Some 3rd party PS filters seem to be p
Workflow for multitrack audio in film

by Stephen Mark 8 years ago
Thanks Michael. That sounds promising -- especially if there's a Mac version (which I guess there must be if you're telling me this on an FCP forum). I will definitely check out Wave Agent -- at least

I'm getting these messages upon opening a 90 minute feature with HDCAM footage being cut into an Apple Pro Res 1080 sequence. No stills or filters but some keys and speed changes. If I keep clicking t

I'm old enough to add an historical note to the film editing question. I always used two moviolas. My preference for working with Kem was to gang two four plates. Avid was invented to operate as an an
Is anybody here actually cutting multi track audio with X?
by Mark Raudonis 8 years ago
Anyone care to share their experience of cutting multitrack audio with "X" Specifically: 4 tracks of isolated audio per video clip. Extra credit if you're using dual system multitrack audio with 8-24

The other big lie is that it's necessary to master all that software. It is necessary to master the craft and art of engaging an audience. Software and hardware change all the time but creating compel
Boris compatibility

Is the newer vesion of BCC complete set only compatible with Lion or Avid MC6 or will these filters work with earlier versions Same with Red, FEC etc. Will they work in Snow Leopard and MC 5.5
Re: Boris compatibility
by Stephen Mark 8 years ago
And I have the reverse question regarding Boris Red. I get the impression it does not integrate with Avid 6. Am I wrong If so, where do I find the Boris FX effect within Avid 6 If I'm correct that it

This comment is not much use if you have to make a purchasing decision for a school. I'll make it anyway. I've been a professional editor for maybe 40 years -- from film to Ediflex, Montage, D-Vision,
