Food groups (a, B, C, D etc.) feed separate 5.1 auxes
mono and stereo tracks in the food groups
certain sounds always stay on certain tracks with naming in comments of tracks.
track name A_m_1 comment Door o/c 1
A_m_2 Door o/c 2
the 5.1 auxes have naming in the comments based on whats in the group
Aux A comment = doors / misc / body falls
Aux B comment = Car bys /car engine / punches
Aux C comment = tires / whooshes
Aux D comment = Strut / impacts
aux E comment = whatever
Bg tracks should all be labeled and carry only those sounds for instance
winds traffic tone birds whatever. Its going to change in every show just keep it constant.
A wind 1-2
A wind 3-4
A wind 5
B the same
SESSION START TIMES SHOULD BE WHAT THE MIXER WANTS. They hate this being wrong. Believe me.
no straggle bullshit on the timeline. If you mute a region and leave it on the timeline all of a sudden on the stage its a alt even though its just junk.
If things get complex in the edit (they will) and you need to divert create a region group and label each region on the track with a explanation.
Do this also if you are cutting applause per person on screen then you can region group the track and say
"lady in yellow to the left --->>>>"
"women in black next to her ---->>>>"
