Grading necessities


  • – Raw camera files on a fast* USB-C, USB-3, Thunderbolt disk 
    * (new or reformatted)
  • – Potential VFX shots in the same colour space as the camera files respecting the naming convention
  • – Potential assets for film burns, grunge effects, dust particles or specific film grain

Edit – XML / AAF / EDL

Make sure that the timeline you use to export the XML / AAF / EDL from is flattened down to one video track as far as possible and does not contain any nested or merged sequences. The clips have to relate to the Camera Originals and possible VFX shots, not to proxies if those were used.

  • – XML (the highest version available)
  • – AAF (for video, not an audio AAF)
  • – EDL per video track of a timeline (CMX3600)


  • – Reference video of the same approved edit with data burn-in of source file name and source timecode.
  • – Editors notes:
    • —- Regarding anomalies and/or request specified with timecode
    • —- NLE and Sizing preset used
    • —- Timeline resolution used (if other then 1920×1080) and proxy media resolution (if different to timeline resolution)
    • —- Information on cameras and possible LOG settings that were used.

For more information on the above read our section on migrating an edit.


  • – An EDL per video track in addition to an XML or AAF.
  • – Translation File (describes what could not be translated when the EDL / XML / AAF was created)
  • – A clean high quality export (self-contained ProRes 4444 or DNxHD 175x – or higher if required for the resolution or dynamic range)
  • – Color Passport shots per scene on a timeline as XML, AAF or EDL
  • – Audio mixdown (24bit @48Khz WAV the same length as the program including sync markers)
