Default Video & Sound Editors Will Really Like This

I have been experimenting with a great new feature to allow the visual editor and sound editor to work in parallel much more easily via my project translation tool.

Vordio is now able to ‘re-conform’ a previously translated Reaper project to conform to a later version of the visual edit.

This will be so much less hassle when no edit lock is possible, and to be honest, these days edit-lock is dying out as rule anybody sticks too anyway.

Audio items in the Reaper project will be moved and colour coded to indicate how they were altered during re-conform. This makes it easy for the sound editor to know where to pay attention to changes.

Have fun,
John

It is available now along with a few other new features.

Bear in mind that the new reconform feature only works on a project converted with 4.1 as Vordio needs to embed tracking info in the Reaper project items in order to reconform them later.

Just uploaded 4.1.

People have asked what other video editing formats I will support in future.

The most practical are any open readable formats without intellectual property barriers. OMF/AAF are a world of pain due to licensing issues and also quirky technical interpretations of those 'standards' by different DAWs. I remember the pain of receiving OMF/AAFs that would open in one DAW but not another.

This leaves the possibility of easy support for MEXML and EDL without any obvious legal/technical obstacles.

This would give sound editors access to many other video editing programs such as Premier, Vegas, Edius, Avid, FCP7 and any others that will export either MEXML or EDL.

I would appreciate receiving real projects in MEXML/EDL formats for testing purposes. The more test cases I have, the less bugs are likely.

Thanks,
John

Just released Vordio 4.2 which includes XML support for Premiere, Lightworks & FCP 7. No multicam yet but not long until that is added.

Also has a new reconform feature that makes it possible to reconform audio that wasn't even in the original edit!

By 'locking' newly added audio to audio that came from the edit (using the Reaper 'group' function), reconform can take the new audio with it. Audio moved in this way will be marked purple.

This is looking great. I hope to try this out on a project where it's required. The license fee is no problem at all, considering how much time it would save me. The reconform especially looks exceptionally useful and seems to be a great way to handle things.

Thankfully I still have my old Macbook Pro to use this tool as well.

I am actually thinking of doing a windows version as well. It didn't make much sense with FCPX as it's mac only program anyway but for Premiere & Lightworks they also run on windows too. Makes sense to do it now.

There was a bug in volume automation in the new support for Premiere etc. So I just released an update to 4.2.1

Also added an enhancement to the reconform workflow. I added a new concept - 'locked audio to reconform'.

Basically if you add new audio to a sound edit, reconform won't know what to do with it, so now reconform considers reaper groups aswell.

So if you use Reaper group function to group new audio added with audio that originally came from the edit and is unlikely to be deleted, then reconform can pick up the new audio and move it relative to the grouped item. It will be marked purple to show this has happened.
