MC 6 Apple Color workflow

Hi,

One of the technicians at University has suggested digitising in FCP and then editing in Avid so we can use Apple colour. What do people think?

what did you shoot on?

it makes little difference in most cases where you digitize.
more important is proper ingest to your Avid.

finishing Avid projects in Color is a very frequent procedure

and with the recent free AutoDuck pack it even becomes simpler.

also look into Da Vinci Resolve Lite.

Thanks, how does resolve lite compare to color? It looks excellent but I cant find any comparative reviews.

Also are you saying one of the free plug-in allows Avid projects to be imported into Apple Colour?

Regards,
Ben

again... what are you shooting on?

yes, you have a plugin by Automatic Duck that allows bringing a project from avid to FCP and then color

Resolve Lite can take AAFs from Avid, but is limited (in the Lite version) to HD projects

both are good grading tools.

most important question is... what does your colorist prefer.

We are shooting on a Panasonic HF101.

I am getting in contact with colorist, as they are a student they may wish to look at resolve.

Regards,
Ben

You don't need the duck. Export a QuickTime movie from Avid. Also export an EDL. Import the QT and EDL into Color. Color will chop up the QT.

Color correct. Render. Send to FCP. Then output from there, or export a QT to AMA back into Avid.
