Commercial work In the USA with Ardour
I have the opportunity to get some commercial sound design work again. One of the reasons I stopped doing this kind of work was directly related to Pro Tools and commercial DAW applications. I've been using Ardour off and on for personal projects for the last two years. These projects don't have deadlines, compatibility requirements and assets from multiple parties. So...
Who has had success with doing commercial sound design work with Ardour? Would you be willing to share a story about the project? I'd be particularly interested in how you overcame collaborative issues regarding file formats and imported media.
For example, I'm worried that I'll accept a job, ask if I can use any software I want for the job, be told yes I can then have a hard disk of Pro Tools sessions dropped in my lap with a response of "what do you mean you don't have Pro Tools? I'll find someone else, thanks."
