So far we've been using PluralEyes within FCP where he's been doing the mixdown... but we want to switch over to me doing the mixdown within Pro Tools. I've done this in the past with a super laggy video... and then giving the bounced audio track back to the video guys for rendering with the video within FCP. This seems crazy to me...
What would be the best/easiest way of getting the H4N files into Pro Tools along with the edited film? and is it possible to bounce down a high quality HD version of the movie within Pro Tools?
Also, is mastering a normal thing to do on films? Where should I start with that kind of thing?
Any kind of input would be appreciated.
1: sync up all your audio in FCP, cut the film
2: do an OMF export with handles from FCP, with sync pops and a lightweight QT of the pix
3: open the OMF in whatever audio app you use and do the work+mix
4: bounce out your mix, pull it back into FCP and sync it to the cut.
