Al-righty so film is past deadline. Editor screwed up giving me a proper .OMF and .MV4 file. Producer says I'm the guy who's at fault. Besides giving him the proverbial finger (American) I've got other things to think about. Like....
The .EDL file I got from the editor was the one for the final picture lock. The first audio file (AA) marker on the EDL is a file that is not in the .OMF. It's not in there at all. The first file in the . OMF is completely different. The files that are in the .OMF are in the .EDL but there are these "ghost files" like the one mentioned above that are thick in the .EDL.
Is this common? Might this be my mistake? Do you think it's even possible to finish with this?
Somewhere I was trying to remember a way to work with the new cut just from the .OMF file but I can't find it and with this particular piece a lot of Alternate takes have been used.
I was theorizing that there were inactive clips or something that was in the project during .EDL creation.
EDIT:: I found out the .EDL is not even from the .OMF that it was supposed to be from but I still have some questions.
