When I tried to export an OMF with Reference, I ran into a problem because the video editor thought it'd be a good idea to include files with umlauts. The OMF log only listed successful clip conversions, so the last entries are like this:
...leaving me to figure out that the problematic file was filenämeß.wav, which doesn't appear in the log at all.Exporting audio file: filename1.wav
Exporting audio file: filename56.wav
Exporting audio file: filename234.wav
Exporting audio file: filename75.wav
Exporting audio file: filename81.wav
Exporting audio file: filename37123.wav
Error exporting media
Error while exporting OMF file
Removing OMF file
It'd be more helpful if the log would specify where the error occurred exactly.
(I know, I know, there shouldn't be files looking like that in the first place. But what should I do spotting them in the pool? I can't rename them or anything, the only choice I have is to make a consolidated OMF which was the exact opposite of what I was asked to do.)
Also, when exporting an OMF with events that were muted and set to -inf in the import (which was an AAF), they don't appear in the OMF at all. I don't know if that's something that Nuendo did or happened while importing it elsewhere, but that's undesirable in my opinion.
