Step One - AVID - Prep the sequence with a Countdown at beginning and End Of Picture tail pop at the end

Download these two files Countdown and Universal Tail Leader

Countdown - ProRes.mov

Universal Tail Leader.mov

Open your AVID Project and Import the two quicktimes you just downloaded.

 

Go to >File>Input>Import Media

 

Select the two files

Click on Options

Click on Options again

Image Size Adjustment – choose Image sized for current format

Color Levels - Choose Do not modifty, treat as legal range

Alpha Channel – choose Ignore

 

Click OK

Choose DNxHD 175 as the Resolution then select Open
Then choose to Change the video resolution and Apply to all files in the current import. Click OK

Select your picture locked timeline and duplicate it.  

Then make a new bin and copy the timeline into the new bin.  

You can do this by holding down alt/option and dragging the timelne over to the new bin.

  • Load the COPY of the final sequence in the timeline
  • Delete anything that is before first picture such as slug or extraneous media.  First PICTURE IS EXACTLY WHAT IT MEANS THE FIRST IMAGE OR SOUND OF YOUR MOVIE!!!

    Double click on the Countdown - ProRes.mov to load it into your source window
    Press the "T" key or mark the entire clip so that the duration = 8 seconds
    Place the timeline indicator at the head of the timeline. Make sure no in or out marks are in the timeline. Make sure all tracks are enabled.

    Edit the countdown into the timeline using the splice in tool.

    Then right click in the record side of the composer window.

     

    Choose Sequence Report.

    Change the timecode to 59:52:00 Click Apply Changes> Then click on "Cancel" to close the window.
    Check the timeline and make sure that the 2 Pop is at 59:58:00 timecode as shown here. First Picture should be at the 1:00:00:00 timecode.
    Next insert the 2 pop audio on the rest of the audio tracks. The countdown only will put a 2 pop on chanels 1 and 2 and we need to put it on the rest of the audio tracks. Go to the source window in AVID make sure the Countdown is loaded and go to 59:58:00

    Mark an IN and a OUT point in the source window

    Edit that in on every audio track that does not have a 2 Pop. Go to the record side in AVID and go to the timecode 59:58:00 and mark an in and an out point.

    Select the audio tracks to "Overwrite" the 2 pop audio.
    Click the Red "Overwite" button to place the audio on the track

    Repeat so each track has the 2 pop as shown here.
    Next go to the end of the timeline and put the "Tail Leader" at the end. Put the blue position indicator at the end of the timeline. Make sure there are not any In or Out marks in the timeline and all the tracks are selected.
    Load the Universal Tail Leader into the Source side window.
    Mark the entire clip by clicking the "T" key or mark an in and an out on the whole clip. Duration should be 8:00 seconds
    Edit the tail leader into the timeline using the RED Overwrite Tool. Save your project in AVID.

    Next we need to add in 2 pops on the tail of the timeline on all the tracks except 1 and 2 that already have it. The easy way is to simply copy the 2 pop from the beginning of the timeline and paste it on the end at the tail pop. Go to the 2 Pop at the head of the timeline and mark in and out around the two pop at 59:58:00 Enable all audio tracks except 1 and 2 and copy the regions by clicking "Command C"

    Go to the end of the timeline so we can paste the copied audio regions. Look at the tail pop video and find where it says "END 2 END" shown here. You can also turn on audio waveforms to show you the 2 pop Place the timeline indicator on this spot in the timeline and paste the audio files that you copied. Command V

    Place the timeline indicator on this spot in the timeline and paste the audio files that you copied.  Go to >Edit > Paste Or click Command V 

    Audio will be copied to the audio tracks just as the 2 pop at the head of the timeline.

Step Two – Export and .AAF of the audio to import into ProTools

  1. Make sure the AVID Audio Project Settings are set correctly. Go to the Project Bin and click on the "Settings" tab. Then click on the Audio Project settings.

  • In the Audio Project Settings window change the "Sample Bit Depth" to 24 and also make sure the Sample Rate is 48KHz.

  • Open sequence in timeline and select the video and audio tracks to export. Mark an in point at the beginning of the portion of the timeline to export and an out point at the end of the portion of the timeline to export. If the whole timeline is to be exported mark an in point at the beginning and an out at the end.
  • Example of how timeline should look before exporting.

Choose File>Output>Export to File
Click on Export Setting > Options

Choose the following:

Export As: AAF

Use marks and enabled tracks

Include All Audio

Consolidate Media

Handle Length 180 frames



Convert Audio to Sample Rate to Project

Make a Folder on the destination hard drive to hold both the .aaf and the consolidated Audio Files. Choose that folder after you click "Save"

Click New Folder

Make a Folder on the destination hard drive to hold both the .aaf and the consolidated Audio Files. Choose that folder after you click "Save"
Navigate to the hard drive and folder to save the .aaf and the Consolidated Media

 

Click On Save






Click "Save" on this menu and click "OK" on the other menu and then AVID will start to create your AAF file. 


Step Three -  Export the QuickTime "Chase" Movie to use in ProTools Session

 

  1. First open sequence in timeline and select the video and audio tracks to export. Mark an in point at the beginning of the portion of the timeline to export and an out point at the end of the portion of the timeline to export. If the whole timeline is to be exported mark an in point at the beginning and an out at the end.
