Ha! Of Course

So the QC check on Day 2 was, essentially, a nightmare.
After Dark Horrorfest 4

Pro Tip: movies about post-apocalyptic cities should not have white delivery vans in the background driving through shots.

Also, we had some weird audio issues which... which I'm afraid are actually in the mix I did. They all seem to happen at about the same place in the second reel. So I'm going to fix that.

Actually, the only things which popped up on our QC were two shots that had trucks driving through (one of which I'd already fixed but apparently forgot to put in the timeline) and a half-dozen places in the second reel where the background cuts in and out (where I bet that pre-rendering the room tone will be the fix), as well as the ADR on this one damn scene which I simply cannot get to sync. The weird thing about that particular scene is that the non ADR audio doesn't seem to sync in that scene. I blame a sync curse.

So now we're aiming at a Monday delivery to the lab. Sheesh.

What app are you using to mix your movies these days? I have a bad habit of mixing feature film audio in Final Cut Pro.

I use Samplitude. It's very much a minority-application, but you'll find that the users are whiny bitches who complain about how much better it is than ProTools all the time.
It's a weird East-German program which is designed really well. When you first look at it you might think "WTF" but it has some really nice features.
