Definitions media files

Represents raw audio or video and are stored in individual files

Media files can be directly perceived, that is you can hear or see them

Audio files contain samples; video files contain frames

Media files account for most of the hard drive space used by a project

Definitions: Media Files


Definitions metadata

Info embedded in a media file files

Examples include: scene #, take, sample rate, bit depth, SMPTE frame rate, region names…

Metadata cannot be directly perceived, a software application is required to see metadata

Info embedded in a session or sequence file that includes what media files are used, where they appear on the timeline, etc

For AAF/OMFs – info about unrendered AudioSuite effects

For AAF/OMFs – info about automation (clip based gain)

  • Allow for projects to be interchanged between different applications and editing platforms (i.e. Final Cut Pro and Pro Tools)

  • AAF (Advanced Authoring Format) – is a sequence only file – does not contain media –like a pro tools session file (ptf or ptx)

  • OMF/OMF (Open Media File Interchange) – is both a sequence and media (audio and video) file format

  • MXF (Media Exchange Format) – media only (audio and video) Can be used with AAFs, but not OMFs

Individual Avid video files in the MXF or OMF format

OMF audio files

Note: Additional AVID video hardware/software is required for importing MXF and OMF video.
