    hi...i have been doing all my projects using Nuendo...the studio where i want to get a final mix/mastering done only has ProTools...

    i can do a mixdown of each track in WAV and open it in ProTools but i was wondering if there is an advantage of doing the mixdown in OMF (have never done OMF mixdowns so completely illiterate about that)...

    any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated...
  2. When you say OMF mixdown, do you mean transfer? OMF is a file interchange format that will allow your tracks to be transferred to and from video and audio workstations. However, keep in mind that it's not a perfect science and that going from Nuendo to Pro tools can be painful if you don't use the right tools. Please check out this website. You will find the process is described in an article by Steve Tusher. It's worth the read because it will give you a method that has worked for people. Plus you can get feedback from others in the forum if you still have problems.

    Best of luck!
