Once you have imported your project’s conformation (XML or AAF) into the third party software and completed editing, you will need to export it once again as an XML or AAF file to bring it back into your Storyboard Pro project.
- In your original storyboard project, select File > Conformation > Import Animatic Project.
The Import Project window opens.
- Click the Browse button and locate your XML or AAF file.
- In the Options section, all of the options are enabled by default:
TIP You can import audio tracks composed from scratch in a video editing software by exporting them into an XML or AAF sequence, then importing the sequence via this dialog, with the Process Video option unchecked.NOTE If you exported your captions without Rich Text Formatting, and made changes to them, they will lose their formatting when the changed captions are imported into your project.
- Process Audio: Uncheck this if you don't want the changes done to the audio tracks or sound clips in the sequence you're importing to be applied to your Storyboard Pro project. Your project's audio tracks will be left untouched.
- Process Video: Uncheck this option if you don't want the changes done to the panels, scenes or transitons in the sequence you're importing to be applied to your Storyboard Pro project. This can be useful if you only wish to conform edits to the project's audio tracks.
- Process Captions: Uncheck this option if you don't want changes to captions done in the sequence you're importing to be applied to your Storyboard Pro project.
- Click OK to return to the Import Project window.
The Report section displays information relative to the conformation process. If an error happened during the conformation process, this is also where the details relative to this error would appear.
