    Re: Audio match frame export

    I was assuming the video and audio came from the same master clip, so that source names were the same.

    If it was separate sound then I don't see how this will work. In fact, I can't see how the AAF method would have worked in this case, as there would also be no matching source name/Tape number etc.

    If your video has a tape number you could assign the matching number to the audio tape number, and use this to relink - but I suspect this might be as much work as your original match-framing method.

    It might be possible to force a relink based purely on timecode, observing the caveats already mentioned about repeating timecode on different shooting days. I seem to remember I managed to do this some years ago by using the 'Relink to all Selected Items in Open Bins' option, and setting the 'Ignore suffix' to include the whole source or tape name.

    If you work from AutoSynced clips, you have essentially created the relationship between the picture and sound clips, and can therefore matchframe to the AutoSynced clips. 

    Finding ways to automate this process (other than a macro utility) seems like way more work than doing the task itself. Yes, it would be great if MC had the ability to let you prep macro's like this.

    Re: Audio match frame export

    Bruno M:

    I'm wondering if this could be done with an EDL?

    The procedure would be as follows.

    1) Use list tool to export the video only sequence as an EDL.

    2) Open EDL in text editor - like Wordpad.

    3) Use 'Find & Replace' feature to change all instances of a single, capital 'V' to 'AA/V'

    4) Save EDL.

    5) Import EDL into MC.

    6) Relink timeline.

     

    This is the sort of function the various Audio post tools offer. they can even do it from an EDL. But it only works if the audio is from the same video clip.
