Client choosing time code for rough cut - Fastest method?
on Jun 25, 2012 at 9:07:54 pm

I have a client with 25+hours of raw documentary footage. He's not an editor but he wants to create an edit decision list for me so I can easily rough cut his documentary in FCP. My client is willing to help me and he has an IMac. In an effort to save time on this very long project, I need the quickest way to get this rough cut to the FCP timeline. And I know someone has done this before :)

The question is two fold.....

1) Should I have him use QuickTime player and submit to me written TC values? OR BETTER...

2) Is there a method of having him use say IMovie or another app/software that is basic enough for the non skilled that may make my job easier. I don't work with time code often enough to know what is best here and need a little advice.

Thanks in advance!!!
