Delivery

The delivery specifications are for video and sound exports and they are required for me to work fast and effectively on your material. Files can, depending on size, be delivered on a hard drive or through services like Dropbox or Wetransfer.

Please note that specs can vary depending on project size and delivery type, however in most cases the following points apply:

Image

  1. Video file ".mp4" using either the DNxHD (36), ProRes 422 (LT) or H.264 codec respectively

  2. File names should include: work title, version number and export date

  3. Video file should include the Editor's soundtrack for sync and level reference purposes

  4. Timecode burn-in should be positioned so it doesn't obstruct view of actors lips or feet

  5. First frame of action (FFOA) should begin at 0X:00:00:00 where "X" denotes reel number

  6. Visible sync pop, 2 seconds before FFOA for each reel

  7. EDLs for video and audio should accompany each reel

Sound

  1. Sound for picture should be delivered as a referenced (non-embedded) OMF/AAF

  2. File name should include: work title, version number and export date

  3. Organise tracks in your timeline as production sound, ADR, SFX and music

  4. If a clip has rendered audio effects, please include a clean duplicate on the next track

  5. A folder with the raw production sound should accompany the OMF/AAF

  6. The OMF/AAF export should include levels and fades

  7. Clips should be exported with infinite handle lengths or at least 10 seconds
