I know there have been multiple threads on Avid's current workflow. I've only used Avid for a few months back at a previous job, but find that some potential clients are using Avid and I'd like to be slightly more educated on the workflow so if anyone would be willing to give a brief statement on the current workflow I would be much obliged. The 3 things that I'd be interested in finding out are
1) What is the quickest way to get footage into Avid? Can I export to the DNxHD codec via Redcine or Compressor and then import that directly into Avid without any more converting or transcoding? If so, it would make sense for me and mine to convert footage for clients to a resolution of their choosing so that it is an easy ingest for them.
2) Is there a way to edit footage in Avid whilst maintaining the link to the original R3D files (similar to the FCP workflow and using Ibloom's script)?
3) Lastly, what are people doing for their workflows as of now?
Thanks for your time in answering some questions.
