Audio Post Workflows For Video Editors

The audio turnover process for video editors can sometimes be very complex. We will explore the various aspects involved in the audio post process such as how NLE's like Avid and Final Cut Pro create OMF files and how audio files must be arranged and edited for final output.

We will go in-depth about preparing dialog, sound effects and music split tracks, proper file and project management and best practices for the turnover of projects to audio editors and mixers.

Additionally we will discuss considerations regarding the final playback destination, i.e. theatrical film mix versus an Internet web sound mix versus a broadcast television program sound mix.
