Its odd to think that 2 products owned by the same company for many years still have issues talking to each other?
Anyway, that a side MediaComposer 5.5 gave you the ability to exchange locators and marker information. But to be honest this does rely on you having the latest versions of both MediaComposer and ProTools and if the ProTools systems is owed by a third party then this all becomes a little out of your control.
So here's a guide to show you how to use a small (free) application that enables you to get the locator information out of ProTools and then convert this into a Tab Delimited File so that you can import this into MediaComposer, and so far this appears to work across a wide range of versions of MediaComposer and ProTools.
This is great if you need to pass information on for lasy minute edit changes for dubbing or if dubbing pick up on something that they need to pass back to you.
Locators from ProTools to MediaComposer
It has been hard to miss the amazing public reaction to the passing of the technology legend Steve Jobs. Visitors to the apple website on October 5th 2011 were met with the message that Steve had lost his battle with Cancer aged just 56.
Never before has there been such public admiration and sense of loss for a technology pioneer of a manufacturing giant and perhaps this is because its felt that he pioneered a whole range of tools that allowed us all to interact with each other in an infinitely easier way.
RIP Steve Jobs
