Appendix: Preparing For Linear Online  > Using the Offline Cut in Online

Using the Offline Cut in Online

If you are using digital videotape to bring the Avid digital cut to the online suite for your audio, then you should also include the video as part of that first edit. Many online editors use a clever trick where they lay down both video and audio from Avid to the master tape in the online suite. They put a big circle wipe with color bars in the center of the video. That way they can cut over the top of the old video all day and see if there is any discrepancy between the EDL and the digital cut. Any time they see a flash of color bars they know something is a frame or a field off and they can make adjustments. It sure is better than squinting all day to tell the difference between one frame of 10:1 and the original!
