DELIVERY SPECS

VIDEO SPECS

 

  • Start the video export at 59:50:00 for 10 seconds of preroll. Picture starts at 1:00:00:00.

  • Include head pop at 59:58:00 and tail pop 2 seconds after picture ends

  • Video format: full frame codec (preferably Pro Res LT) Quicktime video or H264

  • Do not use the MP4 format when sending

  • Include window burn with timecode, placed in a top corner of the frame

  • Include your rough audio mix when exporting video. It will be our reference track.

AUDIO DELIVERY

 

  • 2-Pop: Include a single frame tone that lines up with your video head and tail pop

  • Organize your audio tracks:

    • VO

    • Dialogue A – Formal Interviews

    • Dialogue B – Informal Dialogue

    • Keep each mic source on it's own track (boom, lav 1, lav 2, etc)

    • PFX – Non dialogue sounds from production [ambience, vehicles, etc]

    • PIX – Sound FX added by the picture department

    • Music – Score

  • Make sure to include ALL mic options (Boom, Lav, Camera).  And do NOT cut lav and boom together on the same track. Different microphones always need to be on their own track in a consistent fashion.

  • Include separate audio folders for the following:

    • Room tone

    • Wild Lines

    • Complete production audio – raw files. Not required but helpful.

 

  • OMF vs. AAF: An OMF is a more stable delivery method but it has a 2 GB size limit. If you go with the OMF and your project is large you can export OMFs for each grouping of audio tracks [VO, DLG, SFX, etc]. You can also simply try the AAF and we’ll let you know if there are any problems. Export options below:

 

  • OMF

    • 24 bit / 48khz

    • Embedded Audio

    • 10 second handles (240 frames)

  • AAF

    • 24 bit / 48khz

    • Separate Audio

    • Consolidate Audio

MEDIA DELIVERY CHECKLIST
