Whats the best way to get a feature film FCP file over to my studio for editing. I think he said 1T

I am in the process of picking up a book to learn these basics but wanted to get it going before I get the book.

THanks

Hello Seth and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

You don't give us much to go on. I don't know who "he" is but a T1 (not 1T) line is not cheap last time I checked and unless you're running a lot of traffic to make it worth your expense, sneeker-netting hard drives is the cheapest way to go if distance isn't an issue.

Sorry about that

The FCP file that the editor has is around 1 terabyte. I've only worked with small shorts where the files are usually 15 gigs or so. Is there a way to export the file to make it smaller, like how in audio you can export to new project file with out unused media? I thought that if I got a quick time export it would be harder to clean and I would rather have the original file to work with.

Thanks

Just to finish post.

The editor is going to send me 15 min "reels" as a quick time video file with color code and 2 poop(new to me terms I need to get that book!)

And then export the audio in omf files. This is the only thing I'm not clear on but I assume they stay in sink or have a stamp on them.

Seth,

It's 2-pop. :) I think it refers to two boops of sound added to a clip before a scene starts. Like a countdown.

I don't cover that in my book.
