Trying to work this into my pipeline more as it appears “small changes” are becoming more frequent.
I’ve used Matchbox before for small timing changes, but I have an act of a show that has 46% damage and I’ve run into some issues. The biggest being that normally I have cuts, but now I have quite a bit new material. I’m also fluent in MC, so I’ve gone in and made myself 3 types of AAFs between v1 and v2. Self Contained AAFs, Foldered AAFS, and one folder AAF that has all the media in the same Avid MediaFiles folder. All sequences have committed multicam edits.
- Does the type of AAF matter?
- In the re-conform process, I take it Matchbox does not add the new media from the AAF?
- If not, can this be an added feature?
- I have a new interview that was added and Matchbox is showing a solid 13 minutes of healed media. That new media is sitting right in the thus said “healed” section and it’s not picking up anything. I can even see the new media in the Matchbox app.
I feel like the process would be to still bring in the new AAF under the reconform and add the media missing… But without knowing what’s new, how can I safely do that? There’s no markers for “missing media here”
I’ve watched all the videos on YT, and luckily I know where the changes are in this particular case, but that’s obviously not always going to happen. We’ll get a __ was added when they also added some FX they forgot to tell me about.
Also, I’m testing this at home on a demo version… That has no effect right? Just trying to get ahead before I tackle this issue this week.
Thanks, great software!!! Keep it going.
