Assemble EDL to protools
Could it be available to assemble an EDL to pro tools within a BH database?
Thanks in advance
Explain a bit more.
I'm a bit confused cuz BH is not a linear DAW so please explain a bit more. 😉
Why not just use Kraken if it does what you want already? hehe 😉
I keep adding more feature for dialog editors in each version slowly but Kraken is a whole another type of tool/animal and if I add something like this I could never make it for a single DAW (Pro Tools Only) and would need to make it work for Nuendo/Cubase, REAPER and other DAW's also I support and that is massive amounts of work.
FYI: not sure if you saw this cool new dialog tool that already works with BaseHead
Absentia DX - Transcribe
@makarushka Tall order is an understatement. That is a Venti order! hahaha 😉
I have planned CUE Marker searching in basehead 2024 and it's getting close to being added to the BETA for it now.
What is the problem with Absentia writing metadata into the file? Are they not preserving existing metadata and blowing it out which is totally no bueno? or is the time it takes?
The CUE chunk where traditional Markers are written is a separate chunk than iXML or BEXT where most the metadata is written.
Yeah the Dialog workflow is all about referencing original files so I can see why that wasn't a smart move. Maybe they could write a tiny file next to it called [filename].cue that copies the CUE Markers they write into that. In one hour we could make basehead 2024 look for that file and read and write to it instead of CUE chunk in the original file as this data we read live already on each record click so easy on our end. Try to convince them to do that and I will add support for it cuz it's a simple task. 😉
We would need to talk to settle on a format but I know those guys so easy peasy if they agree.
Please Attach one of their .xls files to look at also the Kraken ones.
BTW: We already have a [field] in the basehead 2024 database for marker data so we can make it searchable.
