Chapter 6. Editing to Picture > Conforming to Picture Changes

Conforming to Picture Changes

You are bound to want (and need) to make changes during your project. These changes can become necessary at the most inconvenient times. If the director makes any changes to the video edit, then the audio session must follow those changes. When these changes are required in the midst of audio post-production, conforming the audio to match the new video can be complicated. Each change can either add video to the timeline or take some away. If you have already edited dialog tracks and added effects and maybe music before these changes occur, you will have to conform all of your new tracks to these picture changes.

When a picture change is made, the editor will usually create a change note. This could be as simple as a handwritten note or as complex as a multi-page, edit-decision list that outlines each change in terms of time code. The change note will specify at what time code values the change takes place and exactly what was added or deleted. You can use this information to edit your session and match the new video edit. However, change notes are notorious for being inaccurate in some respect and may not always help in making accurate edits. Referencing the newly edited video is the only way to be truly accurate.
