I think this may help - found it after much thought and frustration. Both PP and Audition do export OMF, and one can find it's OMF file in the place you put it, BUT also you have to point to the saved and copied media files which are called something totally unrelated to your original track names - long numbers, then .aif. These files are not in the same place as your omf, but found under a newly created folder called audio files. The your audio programme may or may not put the old names back. This is a hugely time consuming, inaccurate and frustrating way of doing it, hate to harp on it but with FCP it was so simple....
Try using the Encapsulate option instead of Separate Files.
Hi Jim, related issue for me.
Older version CS5. (I did not want to upgrade during project on advice of other editors).
The OMF export files stall, (many threads about that already). On camera audio (HDslr's) as bumpers with banter, then 48k masterd tracks from CD release.
Is my best bet to export as FCP XML, find a friend with FCP7 and have them ingest (then export) OMFs for me?
Deadline, and mastering session booked for today was put off until I can deliver OMF's to the session. Last night I assumed sending out OMF would be simple, having not used that before.
Turned out poorly it seems.
Any thoughts, from the savant realm?
This is tough as I no longer have 5.0 installed. On CS6, it just works.
You may want to install the trial and give it a go. Opening the project will ask you to save with a new name, so the original project will still be there if things go south.
Jim, so far have it working now, used Clip, Audio, render and replace, (Copied to a seperate tab, time line) I'm exporting both trimmed and full encapsulated, in case we need bits (applause etc.) for sweetening.
Thanks very much for taking time to guide.
Lewis would be nowhere without Clark, but, without the native folks, including Ms. Sacajawea, they might still be camped on the Illinois side of the Colombia Basin (confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri).
