FAQs for The Audio Suite
We get asked many different questions, so it's hard to suggest the most common ones, but maybe the two most regular are -
"How do we give you our material?"
To which we say, "We'll take the sound as an OMF1, an OMF2 or an AAF file, with 100 frame handles and all fades and effects rendered, with your edited pictures quickly and easily transferred to us as an SD QuickTime (with Burnt-In Time Code, please)." See Our Delivery Requirements page for more details.
"What codec should we use for QuickTime?"
We've found that 48kHz MPEG-4 QuickTime's are the most robust for us, although we also accept Avid Meridien Codec QuickTimes.
Our preferred audio track configurations are given in Our Delivery Requirements technical bits, and time spent by your editor placing these tracks as shown can save you time and money in our studios.
The main thing is, we'd like you to feel that you can simply contact us, and be assured that you'll be answered accurately about any part of our audio post-production process, and know that we can integrate seamlessly into your workflow.
Meanwhile, here are two excellent sites for more in-depth details on audio post-production -
