Want to be a multitasking guru? In Avid, type descriptions in the capture tool while digitizing. All the cool AEs are doing it!
Numbers go up or down.(Usually down in terms of my finances!) If timecode numbers don’t move at all, you’re at the end/beginning of a tape!
Don’t wanna capture a whole tape? Click on the Avid Capture/Log Button in the capture tool to log specific timecodes.
Avid bins are limited to 27 characters and the Capture Tool is a copycat. Sorta. Keep those tape names to 32 characters or less!
The Capture Tool has shortcuts too. If you wanna capture ASAP, press F4 to get things going!
