    Avid Marketplace - feature request

    RE: Media Composer

    The Avid Marketplace and its venders has been a welcome addition for the past few years. And as a result of its integration, users have the "vender" columns available in the bin display. We also have the ability to generate Stock Footage Reports from each sequence. For editors, the Marketplace is a useful tool. But for producers, it is no where on their radar.

    So it begs the following question: Can the various "vender" headings become editable fields?

    For all clips in a project's bin that were NOT obtained via the marketplace, these "vender" headings would still be a remarkable asset if they could be edited - mainly because of their linkage to the sequence-based feature of a Stock Footage Report. Especially here in the documentary world.

    Example - I have six local museums who have archive photos we can use. (As small, locally-run organizations, they never have been - nor will ever be - part of the Avid Marketplace.) We went there and scanned the images. Thousands of them. Museum #2 will charge us $100 per image. Museum #5 will charge us $45 per image. Being able to generate our own, manually-crafted Stock Footage Reports would be an invaluable asset to the postproduction process.


    Or if there was a way for a user to populate a separate, project-based area of the Marketplace... ideas? Am I making sense?

    I've been begging for Stock footage reports for years.  Pretty much the answer I have got in a run around way is.  If they let us edit those feilds and print that report.  What motivation do you have to use the prefered vendors in the Market Place.
