Working in video projects in collaboration with video editors and want to mix and edit audio in REAPER? Consider using Vordio!
Vordio is a desktop app, made by mrlimbic, which lets you convert projects made in a Video Editors (NLE, like Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, Avid Media Composer etc…) to REAPER projects. For this, it uses projects exported to an exchange formats (FCP XML, AAF…), and convert them to RPP (REAPER Projects) files. This was made possible due to the fact that RPP files format is just text, not encrypted like in other DAW, so it makes project generators coding way much more easy.
Here is the list of currently supported formats:
- FCPX XML (.fcpxml) – Final Cut Pro X, Davinci Resolve*
- FCP XML (.xml) – Adobe Premiere, Final Cut 7, Davinci Resolve*
- AAF – Advanced Authoring Format (.aaf) – Avid Media Composer, ProTools
- REAPER project (.RPP)
- Adobe Audition session (.sesx)
- CMX3600 (.EDL)
- AES31 ADL (.adl) – Nuendo
- OpenTL (.tl) – Presonus StudioOne
- Presonus Capture (.capture) – Presonus StudioOne
- Protools Session Info (.txt) – ProTools
Vordio has some really advanced features for post-production workflows, including Reconformation, which lets you update an existing .rpp files based on a newer version of an exchange format file send by the video editor. This let you stay in sync with the video team!
As you can see, with such specific features, Vordio is more suited for post-production workflows than regular project conversion (you would consider AATranslator in this cas; I will write an article about this at some point. You would also consider this is you want to use the unfamous, outdated and unmaintained OMF format 👀).
Vordio is well maintained and has regular updates and optimizations. If you want to know more about its usage, you will find guide and tutorials on Vordio website, linked below!
