Any chance/way to get the Flame Timewarp in Timing-Mode running with TC instead of Frame?
Need to relink a whole bunch of stuff but with less handles than before. And there’re a lot of keyframes that need to be adjusted.
If not, there’ll be definitely a feature request created (if there is not already one).
Shouldn’t the conform module just…do this? You might have to consolidate your handles down before you relink. I get AAFs from avid with animated TWs on them all the time and the metadata always references full-length dailies. If you consolidate down to whatever handles you’re getting back from the colorist it should link right up. Just make sure you have the conform module set to Source TC and not handles I guess?
That’s what I do as well when receiving AAFs from Avid. But there those Timewarps are set to Speed-Mode which anchors to Source-TC.
This case, we rebuild some Speedramps manually using Timing-Mode and need to relink those to shorter graded sequences. And since Timing-Mode just counts from it’s given first frame it doesn’t match to the Source’s TC when new first frame is now another one…
Edit: And yes! Consolidate to the exact same handles as the colorist is doing would do the trick. But: this isn’t possible, since we’re working with edits which are so called “cutdowns/lifts” from the graded main edits so we don’t have 10 handles for every shot. And we conformed hundreds of those edits already =P
Edit 02: And by consolidating the handles we loose the source connection
I was wondering if I was missing something because I seem to recall doing this a more than a few times. Now that I have had a moment, I have run a few tests and I can’t get it to not work properly. I’m not sure what the OP’s limiting factor is, although with using the conform tab, I did need to consolidate before re-linking.
