Identifying Music and Sound Effects

When brining in Sound Effects and Music from your source, it is important that you place all pertinent information into the Clip Name.

For example, say you are bringing in the main title music from American President. Now, Main Title is the name for tracks in many a score, which can be confusing when trying to identify the clip when turning over. So, in the Clip Name, I would label it as follows: American President_Track01_Main Titles. When turning over an OMF to your Music Editor, he/she will immediately be able to see what this track is and where it came from.

By putting as much information as you can into these clips, you make the turnover process much more manageable.
