Cross post - But I know some of you have dealt with 1080 to 35mm in here more than the FCP guys:
We have a finished 5.1 mix for a feature film. I digitized the discreet channels from D5 into FCP. Now we're being asked for .bwf files, which I know are basically .wav files but with TC embedded. Anyone have a method to create these? FCP wont do it, QT wont do it....
Broadcast Wave files (Consolidated/Flattened, see below)
*Consolidated/Flattened: Individual Bwav files with matching lengths for each channel (Example: one Bwav file for Left, one Bwav file for Right, one Bwav file for Center ect.) These files are to be completely mixed final sound requiring no additional processing, plugins, fades, or level adjustments.
16 or 24 bit depth
48K Sampling rate
-20dbfs Reference level.
Time code frame rate matching the sound speed. (Example: NTSC 29.97fps Df/NDF, PAL 25fps, Film 24fps)
Delivered on a DVD-R, DLT, LTO, M.O. Disk or Hard Drive.
Yeah - this is a ProTools sort of thing... but then only mixers who have the license or something...Gotta go to a mix stage that specializes in feature film. It's like OMF - FCP can make one, but it sure can read one.
