Prepping Multiple Sequences for Broadcast Safe Video
on Apr 27, 2011 at 2:51:03 pm

What is the quickest way to prepare multiple sequences in FCP for broadcast safe?

I recently discovered Walter Biscardi tutorial on using Color, and due to my lack (or rather non-existent) knowledge of Color, I'm unaware of how it works and how to use it to it's full advantage.

If you are unaware of Walter's method it involves:
1) Exporting a self-contained file of the sequence
2) Creating a new sequence with said file.
3) "Send To Color".
4) Adjust Ceiling IRE and Chroma Limit.
5) Render.
6) "Send to Final Cut Pro" which then creates a new sequence in FCP.

My problem is that I have I haven't found a way to "Send to Color" multiple sequences at the same time and have Color render everything in one batch. Currently, I have to Send to Color one sequence at a time, wait for Color to finish processing, Send it back to FCP, and do it all over again with another sequence.

I'm one to believe there's always a better way and there HAS to be a better workflow for making multiple sequences broadcast safe. Perhaps another method that skips using Color all together? Isn't there a way to keep it all in FCP?

Any info or suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Here is another just in FCP. You still need to go through your footage and correct first.
Hope this helps.
