    Checking duration of clips used in timeline

    Hello all,

     I'm using Avid 8.8.5. Looking for some assistance on something which should be fairly easy. 

    We're making an hour long doc. We've received long archive clips from multiple sources which have been cut in to multiple places on our timeline.

    Is there a simple way for me to view how many mins/secs have been used in our master timeline from these clips? Would make it easy for us to estimate how much we would owe for the material as they charge by min. 

    I'm presuming there must be work around as opposed to going through the timeline and adding up each bit of archive which has been cut in.

    Re: Checking duration of clips used in timeline

    Not sure if sequence report has improved in this area at all? - producers report may help

    I’ve used in the past

    You could decompose your sequence with 0 frame handles & sort/sift to show only relevant archive clips (although this won’t show if you’ve repeated the same frames and will be at 100% speed - so durations will be longer than timeline if you’ve sped up footage

    In Premiere I can ‘find all’ (eg ‘archive’ in description) in a timeline and copy those clips to the end of the timeline and remove gaps to get duration of archive used. I don’t think this is possible in Avid though?

    Absolutely agree that archive & music reporting is essential in docs - should be better served in the NLEs themselves.
