Materials needed for the foley session


  • DNxHD codec ideally; AppleProRes, AppleProResProxy422 or H.264 are OK too
  • 1080p resolution (1920x1080)
  • Self-contained (with no external references)
  • Timecode window-burn in at the top of the frame inside the video-safe area (if the window-burn is at the bottom of the frame, the footsteps and flooring surfaces may be obscured)
  • 2-pop and tail-pop with corresponding video reference on each reel

Guide Tracks

Preferably separate files for dialogue, SFX and music (with corresponding 2-pop and tail pop).


  • CMX 3600 format
  • video-only edit list (no audio tracks in the EDL)
  • to be used for cueing the session

  • please clarify any particularly ambiguous or offscreen actions that are needed, but are not apparent in the guide

Session Setup Information
