way in the past I have... but not recently. This is a problem that you should address with Avid. As to optimizing drives containing audio or video files... Personally, I NEVER optimize drives with software products... I have run into corrupted files doing this. I purchase a new drive of equal size, and simply transfer everything over so its copies contiguously. After verifying, I can clear the old drive and reuse. I sometimes do this with directories and sometimes entire disks. There are some people who do use s/w products to optimize, but I do not.

True Peak different read

Hi Georgia,

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and answered my question.
I have mixed a 5.1 project and limited true peak level in -2, I also re-scan the level by dolby meter and wave plugin, the meter was read in -2.

But the client reported that my true peak level was -1.9....Is there any standardize problem between the plugins, or which plugin you think is the most acurrate ?

HI, you are talking about 1/10 of 1 db. that variance can be from all sorts of places, what s/w was used and its underlying algorithm, how the s/w was set up, on what system the audio was monitored, and the configuration of that system... At /10 of 1 db it's not really about accuracy which monitoring/measuring system is the most accurate... it's about which system the client is using for QC and matching it or simply NOT pushing the envelope on the max level... drop it a 1/2 db for a safety level and call it a day.

Hi Georgia,
I just wondering why the OTT set the loudness level in around -24 lufs but the music industry like the spotify set it around -14,
that means we need we have louder music ,the softer dialouge? Is there any way the both industries could make a better viewing experience for audience ?

OTT (Over-The-Top) media distribution is trying to be created without using an MSO. To assure that all content is the same loudness the creators of OTT have made a command decision that puts audio close to other MSO standards. Music is less of a concern than video streaming. Don't confuse a music track with a Film or broadcast style mix... music and dialogue are mixed in these formats just like always with a -24 level... Music in a song or album has always been "hotter" than a show or movie mix... the two "viewing" experiences are different, since one is not "viewing" but "listening"... so it's not really relevant since you want be streaming a show, then music alone, then a film, then a show, then music alone... etc you'll tune into a OTT music feed or an OTT video feed.

MSO - Multiple System Operator - multiple cable or direct-broadcast satellite television systems operator - like Spectrum or other cable service supporting multiple regions.

because of the varying requirements for content providers, production companies, and others I would tell you to simply read the delivery specs. If you have not been given delivery specs by the client, talk to them and get those delivery requirements before finishing a mix and/or delivery. There are simply too many variables to make a blanket statement. I've listed data and some specific delivery specs in the Video post production forum here.

Dear Georgia,

If client want to get a stereo wav with a dialnorm leveled in -24 , and I don t have LM100.
The Dolby Meter plugin is read LKFS and it have parameter to set Leq(A) , is the measurement same as LM100 dialnorm?
If not, any suggestion beside LM100 ?
Thanks a lot!!

Seeking a standard workflow for Music Video editing (25fps)

Dear Georgia,

Thanks your help through the years, friend of mine is handling a music video project and she is not familiar with this, so we are kindly ask your opinion :

Materials :
-Miming vocal performance shooting in 25fps
-Footage from 24fps movie
-Music in wav format

Output:
- 25 fps Music MV


Could we
---create a 25fps project in video editor program( FCP, Premiere etc ), and direct import the 24fps footage from movie or.. ,
---we have to transcode all the 24fps footage to 25fps first by program like Davinci .( It s time and cost consuming )

What s the different between in picture quality of those 2 ways ?

Best,
Wai

Thanks a million!!!!
