ALE Workflow with Avid Media Composer

Learn how to import metadata from the LockitScript App into your Avid within 5 minutes – instead of typewriting piles of paper each shooting day. This feature is part of the Production Service.

 

Click on each step in order to see the entire process

Import the desired video clips in Avid Media Composer.
Next, export standard Avid Log Exchange files (ALEs). Make sure to export each bin within Media Composer that contains required clips from a certain shooting day.

ALE_Workflow_3.1_eng

Select the desired project.

ALE_Workflow_3.2_eng

On the Export tab select the ALE sub-tab.

ALE_Workflow_4.2_eng

Click “Choose File” for the desired day of shooting and camera, then select the AVID-ALE that you exported in Step 2 and click “Upload”.

ALE_Workflow_5.1_eng

Click the newly generated “ALE Download” link to download the ALE file containing organized, merged metadata generated from the camera and the LockitScript app.

In Avid Media Composer select all masterclips, you want to merge and select “Import…” in the right-click menu.

ALE_Workflow_7.b.1

On the following screen choose “Options” and within the tab “Shotlog“ select “Merge Events with known master clips”.

Choose “Tape” to merge the ALE with your masterclips.

ALE_Workflow_7.b.3

Syncing Audio-Files and creating subclips after merging the ALE will sometimes result in subclips not inheriting the new name. This is the case, when syncing is not done in the bin via Autosync, but manually in a sequence with subclipping.
The same applies to syncing audio and video files first and afterwards merging the masterclips with the ALE.

To preserve the name do the following:

In the bin with the masterclips, which have been merged with the ALE, create a new column like “BU_Name”.
Mark the column “Name” and press Ctrl-D or CMD-D.
In the following window you can copy the contents of the column “Name” to other columns. Choose “BU_Name” as target. The Media Composer sychronizes all metadata from the masterclips across all corresponding subclips.
In the bin with the subclips display all columns and mark the column “BU_Name”, which should contain the name from the ALE.
Now use Ctrl-D or CMD-D again to copy the content of that column back to “Name”.

Master Lockit Use Cases

Display clip names inside LockitScript

When using the LockitScript app stand-alone, clip symbols are manually created by the script supervisor for each individual camera. With a Master Lockit connected to a supported camera, clip symbols containing original clip names and some other crucial metadata from the camera are automatically sent to LockitScript via WiFi and are displayed within the app.

Download Content Metadata of Every Single Clip

With the LockitScript app, script supervisors note content information for every single clip. The Master Lockit’s web interface enables DITs to download important clip-based content information directly on set via the Master Lockit’s local WiFi – instead of connecting to the cloud-based LockitWebTools.
