Frequently asked questions

  • Comparator is an app that uses exported shot markers to compare and note new or omitted VFX shots from an edit.


  • RealSync is our patented app which uses algorithms and code to breakdown a proper VFX change list based on EDL files of an edit.


  • Staying consistent on the number of video tracks to export is an important part of creating EDLs for RealSync.  For example, if you have been exporting tracks v1 thru v4 and on the next export you output v1 thru v5 with new submissions of shots on v5 - RealSync will pick those new slates up as new slates added.

  • Be sure to "Commit Multicam Edits" to the sequence that you are creating the EDL from.  Right click the sequence and the option to Commit Multicam Edits appears.  This should ensure that proper shot names are delineated in the EDL.

  • This occurs when two clips of the same take are used to create a split screen comp on two different video tracks, the EDL can vary the tracks per output.  Our app will read the in and out point of one clip and compare it to the second clip.  


  • Extended rule 2 was set up to catch anomalies in an edit.  For example, when an Editor places a new take on top of an old shot and it fits the prior in and out points - it will note that 1 Slate has been added. However, when an Editor places a new take on top of an old shot and extends either the head or tail therefore extending the shot from the previous length, extended rule 2 will pick it up.
