We shot on RED at 24fps. Exported QT from REDCINE scaled to pal with burned source TC, in order to edit offline in AVID.
Tried various options with METACHEATER and could not get the TC to sync in AVID with no repeated frames.
using METACHEATER we tried to create an ALE that matches in and out RED source TC's. This resulted in repeated frames in AVID.
Using the AVID TC sd adjust function in METACHETER, turned to pal, ( we live in pal land) it resulted with no repeated frames in AVID but a mismatch between the AVID source TC to the burned-in RED source TC.
While using the last option enables offline editing in sync, we fear that because of the mismatch of the TC's, reconnecting to the online media (scaled 2k uncompressed QT in FCP) will not be as smooth as we wish and will require some extra editing.
We feel that it is our lack of understanding of the complexity of this process that is holding us back. Can someone please shed some light for us.
Thank you in advance for any advice.
