With Avid, you never loose the reference to the
Whatever the naming.
Because you decide what to display or not
In the bins but within the timeline itself.
In bins, I display columns that gives me the infos Ineed,
And in the timeline I generally display the media on a relink
As it gives me instant viewing of the resolution involved but the custom name during the editing
You can save bins display configs according to what you want to see. See the source file displayed here.
While the naming has been done unproperly
now naming as been done well (but source file will remains intact)
Go back to the original is instantaneous at any stage
Without even having to touch the timeline.
And it's not passive, but active. You can actualy isolate and sort clips according to the parameters
you want and affect them.
So, whatever media is created from the R3d, Avid will
Never loose the source file target at the condition
That those medias were created in Avid (or no mess have been done outside).
So yes, if it was resolution independant, you could
Just grap a portion of prores material, revert to the
R3d and crop...but...naaaaaa, no cropping possible.
And that's why it's particulary stupid and frustrating
Because as it's hd, it does not allow the 4k cropping.
So for one side, extremely well implemented media
Management in Avid, and stupudly limited by the resolution
Of HD...again and again, things that work the half way.
yeah, all that is old think.
Ps: about batching colors, yes. As the editor only Link the R3D, if any of the R3D metadata changed,
the changes are applied in the timeline but the timeline needs a refresh.
Is batch color from 1 shot possible within Avid without going RCX? yes, but with Red files and not
using the CC tools but the file settings tools wich only affect the raw datas, as RCX does.
Not possible to do that with AVCHD for ex.
With other media, the only possibility would be to color 1 clip, save the color to a name of your choice,
then grab manually all the clips you want this CC to be applied and drop the CC in the timeline. Not really automatized.
