    Help Please! - AE in FCP / Editor in Avid 4

    I'm a FCP editor/AE and I started an indipendent film a couple of days ago. We are shooting red and transcoding offline to prores 422. Today they hired an editor who only works on Avid 4. I am very confused on how this wofklow should work from DIT through me (AE) on FCP to Avid 4 editor.

     

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

    Why is it going through you? Are you doing effects in AE (After Effects I presume)  or Final Cut?

    If you are using AE I would download the Avid codecs and use those instead of Pro Res. I do this all the time back and forth with AE and Avid and it works perfectly.

    I'm syncing and doing the dailies. I was hired before they hired the Avid editor and we are already a couple of days into shooting. What codecs do you recommend?

    Sorry AE I mean assistant editor, not after effects. I have nothing to do with effects...well basically nothing to do with them...

    Get a free trial of Media Composer. Your editor should be able to give the install of 4 and it should run without a dongle for 30 days. You'll be doing yourself a big favour as an assistant if you learn some skills in Media Composer.
