    Exporting Titles from an Avid Media Composer 24fps sequence into BaseLight

    Hello,

    I'm currently doing a grade on Baselight. I delivered my 24fps Avid sequence, which includes Titles. The colourist has asked me to give him the Titles as TIFF's but I don't know how to do that.

    Could someone please tell me what I have to do? Or suggest any other method of getting Titles into BaseLight please?

    Thank you very much.

    Joao

    In which titler did you make the titles?

    DIY quad core I7-4790K, 32Gb, NVidia GTX 970 4GB, Win 10 Pro, MC(generally the latest or the one just before), MC 7.x [view my complete system specs]

    Hello,

     

    I created the titles in the Avid Title tool.

     

    Thank you

    By "Avid Title Tool", I presume you mean the original titler and not the new Titler+. To generate a TIFF file, you would first open the title back in the Titler tool. From there, export the title as a PICT image.

    Not a lot of things read PICT images on Windows. These include Adobe Photoshop, and After Effects, Corel Paint Shop Pro, and a few others. A free image manipulation program that you can download is ImageMagick (I use it myself). Look for the Windows installer. It sets up the environment variables correctly.

    ImageMagick is a command line application, so open a terminal console (CMD in the Windows search box). Move to the directory with the titles, and give the following command:

    > magick inputfile.pct outputfile.tiff

    substituting the apporpriate filenames. Repeat for each title, and there are your TIFFs.
