Audio Turnover Specifications
Please deliver at intended finishing frame rate per distribution specifications.
2-pop should occur at 00:59:58:00 and first frame of picture/FFOA should occur at 1:00:00:00. Please have a visual 2-pop in the Quicktime reference as well an audio 2 pop in the OMF/AAF or stems provided.
Please coordinate if you are using a different Timecode standard such as Feet+Frames or delivering without a 2-pop
1. Quicktime Picture Reference
A - Pro Res Proxy is what we use to edit. For smaller online deliver, a QuickTime H264 will work, please no .mp4s.
B - Timecode window burn [see above for Timecode specs] Please put in an action safe corner, small enough not to block any mouths or sound related events but large enough to read.
C - An audio reference of how the project has sounded up until the turnover point in the edit should be attached to the QuickTime.
A - For OMF's under 2GB, Please make sure the OMF is consolidated and embedded with 10 to 20-second handles depending on file size restrictions. WAV or AIFF is accepted.
B - If exceeding the 2 gig file size limit on an OMF please break up the OMF by track and make sure there is a 2-pop on every OMF.
C - All raw production microphone tracks should be present in the AAF/OMF. Please coordinate if the alternate microphone tracks need to be relinked.
D - If there are any rendered effects in the AAF/OMF please also include the original unaffected audio.
E - The more organized the tracks in the AAF/OMF are by Dialog, SFX, and Music, the faster we can get started with it.
F - All audio in the AAF/OMF should be in sync with the QuickTime reference and play down as hear in the Editorial project.
3. Production Audio Files/Sound Rolls
All production audio and sound notes as delivered by the production sound mixer, as well as a copy of the script, should be provided.
