    DF and NDF issues

    Howdy

    Recently several pkgs were sent to mix in NDF and it was discovered late in the game. I recently built our show on a DF timeline and cut in the NDF pkgs along with DF pkgs and their associated mixed audio stems and sent it all back for final mix.

    There was a problem in the mix where the audio engineer could not mix our show because of the mixed NDF and DF pkgs on our DF timeline.

    I was under the impression that if I put everything onto a DF timeline it would turn the NDF into DF (and I found out all this infor after the fact).

    Can someone enlighten me as to how to resolve this issue...hopefully without having to rebuild my show and redo all the fixes that have already been made.

    TIA

    Re: DF and NDF issues

    The Clip->Modify command can change timecode from NDF to DF and vice-versa. I'm unsure if you needed to change it before adding the clips to the timeline. But as it's Media based, I think it might take effect even after the fact.

    I hope this is of some help.

    Something seems odd here.  Our mixers deal with sequences containing a mix of NDF and DF regularly with no issues.  They are using Nuendo systems.

    I would bring this up with the mixer or get a second opinion.
