    Metacheater ALE import question

    Hi,

    this is a question about using Metacheater to bring already-captured quicktimes in to an Avid project. This is an FCP to Avid transition.

    For those who don't know it, Metacheater scans Quicktime files, picking out their embedded TC and metadata, and creates an ALE so you can get a bin full of offline clips in Media Composer, and then use Batch Import to bring in the media from those Quicktimes, thus letting the Avid merge metadata with media the way it does.

    My question is: to which column should I map the "Reel" information for each clip, when creating the ALE in Metacheater? In the case of how these clips were originally logged in FCP, "Reel" means TAPE: e.g. "001" refers to tape 1; but I notice Avid has columns for both "Tape" and "Reel", and Metacheater can allow me to map FCP's "Reel" column to either one, or both.

    I want to get it right, in case I want to recapture any clip down the line with larger handles.

    Thanks in advance for any light on this one,

    LMN
