Avid Xpress Pro / Media Composer Export Prep

When it comes time to export your sequence to any format there are a few things you need to make sure you do to not only have a successful export but to also speed up the time your export will take.

1.Consider rendering all effects in advance. Although any unrendered effects are rendered on export (except for an OMFI or AAF export), rendering effects in advance saves time during the export process.
2. Always render fast-saved titles before using OMFI or AAF to export a sequence, or before creating an EDL from the sequence.
3. If your sequence contains numerous video tracks, consider mixing down the tracks in advance for faster export, unless you need to preserve the multiple- track information. For more information about mixing down video tracks, see "Performing a Video Mixdown" in the Help.
4.If your sequence contains numerous audio tracks with various audio effects and level adjustments, consider mixing down the tracks in advance for faster export, unless you need to preserve the multiple-track information.
5. If your sequence contains audio clips with different sample rates, use the Change Sample Rate dialog box to ensure that all the clips have the same sample rate. You can also use OMFI or AAF to change the sample rate. See "Exporting OMFI and AAF Files" in the Help.
6. Check and adjust all pan and audio levels in advance. All current Pan and Level settings in the sequence are carried to the exported media. For information on adjusting level and pan.
7. You cannot export OMFI files that are larger than 2 GB. For OMFI files, consider consolidating the sequence to create smaller source clips, thereby saving time and disk space. For more information on consolidating media, see "Using the Consolidate Command" in the Help. You can also consolidate as part of the export. See "Exporting OMFI and AAF Files" in the Help.
8. OMFI or AAF files with very complex sequences can fail during import into some applications due to memory limitations. Try one of the following solutions:
1.) Break the sequence into smaller sequences and export the new sequences.
2.) Add more physical memory.
9. To export multiple clips in a single file, create a sequence from them. For example, you can select all the clips, Alt+drag (Windows) or Option+drag (Macintosh) them into the Record monitor to create an instant sequence, and then export the sequence.
