Film Post Production Tool. Should I support Ardour?
Are there detailed specs for Ardour's project file format?
I do a fair bit of sound post for film and recently had to cope with getting sound out of FCP X a few times which went horribly wrong pretty much every time. It turned out that most of the conversion tools don't work very well.
I got so frustrated with corrupted projects that I wrote my own conversion tool called Vordio, which translates video projects into sound project. Version 1.0 only supports converting FCPX -> Reaper but I want to add support for more programs soon.
I want to support fully featured but budget level DAWs (not the expensive ones like protools) so I started with Reaper as I like it a lot and use it often (http://reaper.fm).
Anyway, I am now considering adding support for other DAWs and Video editing programs, so wondering about if Ardour should be next on the list of DAWs.
If you are curious about my conversion tool it is here.
