    I just got a call from a client who wants to know if she can do overdubs on her nuendo session in my pro tools studio.

    Can nuendo create files in a time-stamped sound designer format? That way, i figure, if she bounces a rough mix of her existing files to a stereo track with the same time stamp as the original files, I can import it into a pro tools session, and then give her sound designer files to take back home to use with her nuendo, and all the tracks will be in the right place.

    Is sound designer the only time stamped format? Or do other formats like AIFF and WAV have time stamping now too?

    That could be a solution, although BWF (Broadcast Wave File) is another Time stamped file format supported in Pro Tools (and Nuendo I belive); another way could be to generate an OMF file in Nuendo and import it in Pro Tools, but you'll need Digi Translator for this operation; this way you'll have the whole mix open available with automation and panning (sans plugins of course); if it's only for several overdubs, however I think the session bounce in a Time stamped format and subsequent import would be the simplest and most effective solution, just like we used to do in the DTRS/tape days.

    Hope this helps

    Yes Nuendo does support Broadcast Wave Files. I just recently got a call from one of my clients about the same thing, but the other way. From my studio which uses Nuendo to Pro Tools. I record all my sessions in this format just for situations like that so it will be easier and faster to work with other studios. BWF also lets you input more info into the wave as well, which is another reason to use BWF over the usual WAV file
