I’m conforming a documentary here. It’s the type of film where dialogue clips are the most important thing to track from version to version, as picture is sometimes changed underneath.
I’m working from AVID AAFs (a mix of embedded and ext media) and picture guide, no additional guide tracks.
The editor has placed a lot of temp SFX, and these are scattered throughout the dialogue tracks so they can’t be turn off track-wise. They have the potential to confuse the conform, as the same sound is used regularly (certain exterior wind for instance) and thus matches all over all the reels of the show.
I’d like to essentially globally “mute” these Temp SFX clips en-masse.
I can readily identify them in the List view, but apparently you can’t “mute” from the list view. (Am I missing something?). Looking thru the timeline view feels laborious and potentially error prone.
Any approaches I’m missing here?
