Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Conforming the OMF import to your template, part of Pro Tools: Audio for Film and Video.
Here we have our OMF file and a video reference movie imported.…All is in sync, and it's working great.…Now it's time to begin our audio work.…In this movie we'll go over the first steps.…We will try to take the audio out of its original OMF tracks and get them into…your pre-made audio for video template.…The first thing I always do before anything else is to duplicate all of the original…OMF tracks, lock them, and hide them.…That way I will always have the original OMF tracks to go back to, in case…something slides out of sync.…To do this, I am going to select all the tracks, right-click on any one of them,…duplicate them--and I am going to keep all of this data as I duplicate.…
Then with these duplicate tracks I am going to select all of the regions.…I am going to type Command+L to lock.…That will be Ctrl+L for windows users. And then I am going to hide the tracks,…again right clicking on any one of the tracks and saying Hide and Make Inactive.…That way they will be hidden, and they won't use any DSP power as you are working.…

Q: This course was updated on 4/04/12. Can you tell me what changed?
A: This update was initiated when Avid released Pro Tools 10. It explains that this course can be taken with either Pro Tools 9 or 10 (the exercise files are compatible with both), and we also added movies that explore the enhanced clip-based gain and Audio Suite features in Pro Tools 10, both of which are useful when building a soundtrack.
