Trouble Re-importing exported ALE to make subclips with only A1A2 tracks
Trouble Re-importing exported ALE to make subclips with only A1A2 tracks on certain cameras.
I am working on a project with 13 cameras and had no trouble using ALE export/modify/re-import in order to lose the audio tracks that had timecode on them. Now I am trying to just lose A3-8 of some other cameras and the ALE method isn’t working. I’m getting a BIN_IMPORT_NO_MATCH error.
Does anyone know a simple fix for this? Below are things I have tried in order to accomplish this.
I saw that the cameras I’m trying to do this on now have the D1 in the track column along with all the V and A tracks, so I experimented with a garbage clip and modified it to get rid of the Data. That did not help.
Then I tried to merge master clips and create subclips using the Camroll option but that made new masters as well as subclips and lost a lot of info such as Source Path so I don’t want to do that.
Then I tried to just make new master clips. They came in with the desired tracks and all pertinent info and I was able to relink them to the media. They no longer have the D1 in the tracks column. Based on the fact that the cameras that had audio timecode did not have the D1 I’m assuming that maybe this is where the timecode metadata is stored. However, the start and end times are there and the duration is correct.
I made a tiny edit with two pieces of this clip and the EDL has the correct timecode showing up and the cuts in the right place. Is there any reason I don’t want to use this method? Will there be a problem with EDLs in the future?
Thanks in advance for any insight!
