POST PRODUCTION

EMMEDIA’s edit suites are reconfigured on a per project basis. Members must specify deck requirements when booking the room, otherwise there is no guarantee the required decks will be available.

All project folders stored on local drives must include the members name, for example: “Jane Smith – Documentary Project”, to make their files easy to identify and to reduce the risk of files being accidentally erased from the computer hard drives. Members are responsible for backing up their project files. It is mandatory that members who use Final Cut Pro set the path for scratch disk, etc to their project folder before starting work each time they use the Edit Suite to ensure their assets aren’t mixed up with others. EMMEDIA IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSS OF MEDIA ASSETS OR PROJECT FILES.

Due to hard-drive space restrictions, it is essential that the Production Coordinator is aware of whose media is on the computer and how long they need it to be there. It is the member’s responsibility to back up their files to disk or personal portable hard-drives. Projects that are inactive for 14 days will be automatically deleted off the system to clear up needed hard-drive space. Members are strongly encouraged to supply their own external hard-drives for their media storage. Members with projects requiring more than 14 days to complete, either consecutive or non-consectutive, must supply their own external storage for their media files. The Production Coordinator can make recommendations for project appropriate storage hardware.



EDIT SUITE RULES:

» Log your time editing in the log sheets. If you do not log your time, you will be charged for the entire day you have the suite booked, not the time you used.

» No food or drink in the suites.

» Only save files to your folder with name and project name. Other folders will be deleted. Back up your files to your personal disk.

» Do not re-patch cables or change system settings.

» Power down computer, speakers and hardware when finished.

» Do not connect to the internet.

» Disorderly suites will be charged for clean-up time.
