Bridging

Bridging

Bridging enables Apple Final Cut Pro 7 and Avid operators to exchange sequences by simply dropping them from one timeline into the other. Media and timeline structures are moved as background operations and converted on the fly.

Aimed at multiple users of both Avid and FCP7 applications this cost effective utility enables facility managers to benefit from improved flexibility when organising projects and allocating resources as Avid and Apple systems can be easily integrated into a single workflow.

How It Works

Using a Client Server architecture up to 20 simultaneous Clients can initiate Bridging conversions. The background Service locates, re-wraps sequence media and converts the sequence structure for the destination editor. Edit workstations are free to continue editing while sequences are bridged.Using a Client Server architecture up to 20 simultaneous Clients can initiate Bridging conversions. The background Service locates, re-wraps sequence media and converts the sequence structure for the destination editor. Edit workstations are free to continue editing while sequences are bridged.

Based on the shots that appear in the sequence Bridging will transfer media from the source editor to the destination editor. Media is converting on the fly between the different wrappers, MXF OPAtom for Avid and QuickTime self-contained media for Apple.

Sequence information is converted between Avid AAF and Apple XML formats to create the required sequence structure. Audio and video track layout is preserved with tails automatically added to all edit points.
