TECHNICAL DELIVERY SPECS
Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Codec: Avid DNxHD36 or Apple ProRes 422 Proxy
Please also provide a H.264 compressed version
Timecode: small timecode counter, placed in the upper right corner
First frame of action at “full hour” e.g. 01:00:00:00
Avoid any timecode or watermarks in the lower half of the picture, as this will make my work a lot harder and sometimes impossible!
Technical leader: movie file starts at 00:59:50:00 on black, with a 1-frame sync beep & pop frame at 00:59:58:00 (which is 2sec before film start, see above)
It’s important to supply a Picture Cut EDL (without sound cuts) with each version of your film!
For Foley projects, please also provide a (Temp) Dialogue bounce with channel splitting: original sync sound on L-, any Temp music & SFX on R-channel.
Depending on your project, you might supply edited audio tracks as OMF/AAF.
Please keep different material on seperate tracks:
Voiceover, Boom, Clip-Mics, Stereo-Atmos, TempSFX, (Temp)Music, …
If you have used external sound recorders, please make sure the meta-data remains intact during import & editing, so the original sound files can be relinked; don’t “export” but rather “link to“ your edited audio material. You can read more on this in the BVFT guide here (German only).
Please provide your sound reports as text-searchable PDF.
Do yourself a favour and provide any music in proper quality, e.g. at least 16Bit/44,1kHz WAV/AIF (CD quality). Original score is to be produced in 24Bit/48kHz (double-check with your composer!).
