About Conformalizer
Conformalizer is an audio post production tool which allows sound editors to automatically conform and rebalance Pro Tools sessions, FX lists and ADR databases to match a changed picture cut. It works by comparing picture EDLs, XML, cutlists or change notes and creating a new “change EDL” which reflects the difference between two versions of the picture. Conformalizer can then automatically conform your Pro Tools session or database file to match the new version of the cut. It also has the ability to play two versions of a cut together in order to visually compare shots or sequences. Conformalizer supports CMX3600 EDLs, film cutlists, FCP XML interchange format and AVID change notes and has the ability to import QuickTime movies to use as a reference.

If you are struggling with having to re-conform projects because the ‘picture lock’ wasn’t worth the paper it wasn’t written on they do take a look at Maggot’s Conformalizer. Justin who has also produced the Spanner surround panner plug-in works as an audio editor an mixer so know the real world problems we come up against.
