A Sound Effect Interview With Tony Cariddi From Avid On What The Future Holds For Pro Tools And VR
The emergence of virtual reality (VR) means a lot of changes for the way content is created and used. And in a special interview for A Sound Effect by Jennifer Walden, Avid's Tony Cariddi shares his insights on what the future holds for creatives using Pro Tools for VR content creation.
We are looking into support for Ambisonics. We have really strong tools for surround and automation, really advanced tools that give mixers a lot of control over that. Outside of that, as it pertains specifically to virtual reality, most of our efforts at this point are to make sure that our SDKs — our Alliance Partner tools, are strong and exactly what the development community needs in order to integrate their tools into Pro Tools. For almost 30 years we’ve had a very vibrant developer community that has made plug-ins for Pro Tools, and plug-ins for Media Composer.
There was a company called Two Big Ears that was acquired by Facebook in the spring. Their product is called Facebook 360 Spatial Workstation, and it enables users to wear a headset and do the mix within Pro Tools. It handles all the final encoding for you and syncs it back to the final video for you when you are done. So you can do the mix while you’re in that immersive format without having to go back and forth. So that technology is here today and it is only going to get better and better.
