Recapturing

•  Does every shot need to be recaptured? It is possible to make an EDL and a cut list with media offline. You can even relink to master clips that are offline just for the correct version of metadata.

•  If the changes requested pertain only to the open and close of a sequence, then you might be able to get away with capturing only those sections. You can leave the rest of the media offline.

•  If the need for recapturing is because the levels were set wrong, then the saved settings for that tape must be deleted before recapturing.

•  If some of the footage needs to be captured in black and white, make sure to set the Capture Tool (Compression Tool on older systems) to monochrome. Even more important, change it back when you’re finished! The third monitor shows you a color image all the time because it is monitoring what the signal looks like before it is processed. How many times have people walked into an Avid suite during capturing at low resolution, looked at the client monitor, and said, “Hey, that doesn’t look so bad!”? The monitor during capturing does not reflect whether you have left monochrome on or are capturing at the wrong resolution.
