I have been searching around looking for some basic information on re conforming to new picture edits. I have come across the write ups on specific auto conform programs which unfortunately do not seem to be compatible with Nuendo, which is the DAW that I use. The only one that may seem to work is Editrace but still I can not confirm that.
We have not shot the film, but I want to make sure that the post workflow is smooth. Sound is for the most part a written character in the story, so I have been designing sounds so the editor can use them to cut with and even to use on set in some instances.
This short is a thesis film and normally I require having a picture lock to avoid the issues with new picture cuts, but I know to make the best story and best film possible it will have to bounce back and forth between the picture editor and myself.
I am not really looking for the easy one button auto conform, but more of a breakdown on the process even if I do it manually. I have never used EDLs and that process, So does anyone have some links or places so I can read up on that process and familiarize myself with what the editor will need to do for me and what I need to do for them.
Unfortunately I am away from my house for the break and all of my books and reference materials are still on my bookshelf at home. Any information on that process and insight into the professional workflow would be amazing. The student film workflow is no where near the same process.
