    Edit 23.98, master to SR 59.94i DF. Concerned about mix drifting.

    We're editing and conforming 23.98, then mastering to HDCAM SR 59.94 DF. On the first episode, we did everything in 23.98 and then opened the sequence in a 59.94 DF project. Avid added the motion effects properly, but we found that audio clips were randomly slipping and sliding. An engineer at Avid recognized this as a potential bug.

    The suggested solution from out engineers is to output via terranex, and cut to the "59.94 DF" timecde in Avid to ensure runtime and act breaks land properly on tape.

    Our workflow: Once we get approval, we lay the video to tape with temp mix, then make an AAF for pro tools. Mix then does an audio layback the next day and the tape is delivered. Unfortunately This part of the workflow cannot be changed due to time constraints.

    The big question: will there we any sync/drift issues between the converted 59.94i DF video output, and the 23.98 audio layback?

    W do not have access to a Symphony for universal mastering.
