SOURCE LIST – Making A Source List Without EDL Manager
When preparing for an online session or an upres, there is the need to determine what tapes are required. One method for this is to use the EDL Manager (Output menu > EDL), and then printing out a "Source" list. Nothing wrong with this, though it can be time consuming with long and/or complex sequences – not to mention the all too frequent crashes that occur when creating an EDL. Well, here is another way that is FAST and will NEVER CRASH:
1 - Put the final sequence into a bin all by itself. If your long format show is still broken into "acts" or "show segments," be sure they are all in that same bin.
2 - At the bottom of that bin, click on the "Bin Fast Menu" button
3 - From the Bin Menu, select "SET BIN DISPLAY."
4 - From the dialogue box, select only the SOURCES check box, and the SHOW REFERENCE CLIPS check box, as pictured below:
5 - Click "OK."
6 - Now your bin will be filled with all the sources for your project (including PICT files, Titles, etc.).
7 - Use the SORT function (also found in the Bin Menu) to organize this data.
8 - PRINT it out and you are on your way.
9 - After printing, simply go back to the Set Bin Display menu and set the display
back to it's original configuration.
* NOTE: The "Set Bin Display" menu is useful for a variety of things. Check out your Avid Documentation or Avid Help for more information on "Reference Clips."
