[Darren Roark] "Just because something is a standard operating procedure doesn't make it right."

And that in a nutshell is why I want editors to own tools that (for whatever crazy reason to them) allows them to deliver what the next facility down the chain actually wants. When I am grading or mixing I am not going to dictate to the director what is right or wrong in their film. I try to give them what they want with value added. If you think post facilities are wrong then you just aren't doing your job.

I really don't need to explain why OMFs are sometimes better than AAFs or why fcpxml is not a supported format in my DAW when it does AAF,OMF AES-31 and gosh yes EDLs. Sometimes I need everything. XML relinking is always an adventure and if I say I need an EDL to drop into a text editor so I can do a quick find on a file name when I am on the phone to the edit room to tell them which files are missing from the drive then bloody well should give me an EDL. So stop wasting my time by telling me what limited tools that suit you are always enough. I get that you and Robin don't get it. I'm used to working with editors that at least accept that I might just know what I need.
