Various places I've worked have found different solutions. Some record the LTC from a broadcast video tape to an unused track. Some will reuse a track from an earlier project. The first is slow (1:1), and both are inflexible. Hardware TC generators are flexible, but it's still real-time creation. I offer a free 32-bit Windows utility that can generate an ...

If master is 120 it seems to automatically adjust to song after it finishes loading in arrangement To purely determine the bpm of your track: Put the song in session view, otherwise the song will skip around Turn off warping and Play from a chosen loop start point Tap tempo to get a rough estimate of song's average tempo Usually if you just align the song ...

I agree with rene. This doesn't sound like a complete redo rather than a chunky re conform with additional work to do with the new material. Products like conformalizer and virtual katy exist to help this process but with some thought, and careful editing practice, you should be able to work through the film. Save a new session as the director's cut, make ...

sounds like you've got a common mess on your hands. as much of a pain as it is, you'll probably get a better result from going through the reconform steps than from re-doing the entire thing from scratch. There are utilities that can help with this. Maggot Software's conformalizer has tools that can compare edls from the first cut and the second cut - ...

I'd say jam if you can. It really depends on what sort of thing you are shooting and how good slate discipline is on set! I think for your film you will be fine-and if you dont have the gear they cant expect it! However, for future stuff the editor will really thank you for being able to sync up automatically without having to manually sync and on a huge ...

How about embedding a smart contract into the audio using digital watermarking? Essentially, a trusted encrypted ledger entry could embed the date (or any particular information) such that later on you could retrieve the value and compare it against what is in the ledger. Don't know if that's a thing, but it sounds like it could work.

This might be a forensics question, the answer to which is is the ENF signal (Electrical Network Frequency) which is used in forensics to locate certain associated acoustic and electrical signals in time for forensic purposes ENF is a technique commonly used in audio forensics. It requires analysts to have recorded ENF signals over a long period of time.

Not sure if this is what you mean, but just pressing the 'M' key will add a mark in your session while recording. Add as many marks as you like. Many different tools can use these marks for various things. The marks can be renamed if you like. You can jump from mark to mark. I don't know of any sound formats that let you keep the marks as part of the sound ...

I've only jammed Alexa from my 633 but there is a few steps you need to take when jamming any camera! You probably want to make your 744 the master timecode source so make sure it is set up to send timecode-rather than receive. You need to let the Alexa know you want it to be a timecode "slave" so you need to go into its menus an select "receive timecode" ...

From what I can gather, it looks like a pretty specialized form of encoding that would need software or hardware designed specifically for writing and encoding the Audio Description information. I don't think such features are built in to Pro Tools or Final Cut. In fact, I could find very little information about any vendors with a solution for this. It ...

I don't think either FCP or PT can generate LTC in software. Higher-end systems (like smoke) can. The usual trick is to digitize the LTC track from a beta deck or similar, and add that as an audio track in your project. If this is a continuing requirement, a sync-locked hardware TC gen isn't very expensive. Horita has one for under $300. http://www.horita....

After thousands of re-conformed cuts, I have gone back to doing it manually, as have some other editors and mixers I know. Virtual Katy et al do a great job, but every cut needs to be checked manually too. And the time it takes to smooth out the cut far outweights the time to do the cut... So, in my experiance, automatic re-conform will save you some time, ...
