[Michael Aranyshev] "Could you please describe your approach to assigning roles to individual lavs in a few thousands production sound takes?"

I would do it just like X allows me to do it. How would you do it?

I would first import the audio.

I would reference the log and then select all and name the components something meaningful (like character_lav, character_boom) to as many clips as it made sense to do so.

I would then assign a Role to the overall audio segments that made sense.

I would then assign more meaningful Roles and subroles as the edit progressed.

I then export an XML and AAF using X2Pro, or use EDL-X, or whatever else made sense for that project.

Then, for the next project, I would buy Sync N Link for $199.

Sync N Link makes this much easier as it automates this extremely manual process. It is well worth the money.
