Real quick question:
What's the convention for abbreviating "Foley" in naming a track?
Thanks in advance.
We typically layout foley in two groups: FS (or Feet) and Props, with each group being between 8-16 tracks wide.
we just spell it out FWIW. Foly1, Foly2, etc.
I typically use F or FOL as a general Abbreviation.
F_Steps - Self Explanatory
F_Cloth - Also Self Explanatory
F_Props or F_Inc for Foley Props or "Incedental" sounds like hand props or anything non-steps or cloth.
I just have 16 tracks simply called Foley 1 - 16. First 8 tracks feet, last 7 tracks spots, with the final track being cloth moves. I name the regions I record with abbreviations; FTS, MOVES etc.
