UM:Avid Work Flows
Digital Vision products include extensive support for interoperability with Avid products, including :
|•||Avid Media Composer|
This chapter describes the main workflows available for Nucoda systems when working alongside an Avid.
Tested and qualified versions of Avid applications are listed in the Compatibility section, alongside a list of supported formats and effects.
The workflow process involves two or three steps, depending on your choice of workflow.
Step 1 : AAF to Nucoda
The first step is to transfer the AAF composition from the Avid :
|•||Export an AAF composition from an Avid and import it into a Nucoda.|
Grade and /or restore on the Nucoda. Finish on Nucoda and play out to server or tape
Export the source modified AAF from Nucoda and re-import into Avid, or export graded MXF files from Nucoda, and re-link them to a copy of the original sequence in Avid.
There are four main ways of transferring the material back to the Avid for finishing :
|•||Sending an Edit Modified AAF back to the Avid. (Sources in the AAF are updated to point to new graded media)|
See : Edit modified AAF Back to Avid</br>
Note that the Edit Modified AAF back to the Avid route is only available for Nucoda compositions originally created from imported AAF files.
|•||Sending only MXF media back to the Avid.|
See : MXF Back to Avid</br>
|•||Sending an AAF containing a record order sequence back to the Avid and optionally doing an Interplay check-in of the sequence and the new video media.|
See : Record AAF Back to Avid with Interplay</br>
Note that the Record AAF back to the Avid route is only available for Nucoda compositions originally created from imported AAF files.
|•||Sending an Record order AAF back to the Avid for use in MC or manual check in into Interplay.|
