Converting Broadcast .wav files for use in FCP 5
on Nov 4, 2005 at 2:10:31 pm

a cross post from the FCP forum

I'm working on a short film shot on HD Cam at 23.98 and the sound was recorded at 29.97 on a hard disk recorder that produces multitrack (10 in fact) broadcast .wav files that include all the metadata such as timecode, scene/take, reel etc.. Does anyone have experience converting these to a format that FCP 5 can use where all that metadata cames across properly . I have tried using Sebsky tools but my audio keeps comming across at 30 fps not 29.97. There doesn't seem to be a setting in Sebsky for 29.97. Are there other applications that make this conversion properly and why the heck doesn't FCP support this format. The multitrack broadcast wav format seems to be all over the place for a while now in professional film and video shoots. Does Logic or protools support this? Maybe I'll try the pro audio forum as well.
