Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing to Pro Tools, part of Pro Tools: Mixing a Short Film.
An AAF, Advanced Authoring Format file, or an OMF, Open Media Framework file are two…file types that can transfer all the audio information, tracks, timecode placement, edits,…volume info, et cetera, from the Video Editing Program into Pro Tools.…For all our purposes OMF and AAF files can be treated the same.…Going forward in this course, I may say OMF, but I mean both OMF and AAF file types if I say that.…Once you have your properly exported AAF or OMF and QuickTime reference movie on hand,…it's time to import them into Pro Tools.…
In this movie we will convert the OMF file into a Pro Tools session, and we will import the reference movie.…We will make it's all in sync and ready to go.…Getting your OMF or AAF into Pro Tools is quite a simple process.…Pro Tools even treats the file the same as it were in a Pro Tool session file.…You can double-click on the file to open it or from a Pro Tool session like we have here,…you can go to File > Open and choose the file. We will choose the Castles.aaf file.…
